Initiation of the Ka'itsenko Warrior Society

Ethnographic Notes

Initiation of the Ka'itsenko Warrior Society. In ethnographic terms, this rare depiction is probably Etahdleuh's most important drawing, corroborating the two historical descriptions of this society, but also adding much new, visual information. Only one similar drawing, by Etahdleuh's friend Koba, is known.

Etahdleuh's father, who has elsewhere been depicted as a leading warrior, is likely the main figure here, the rider at upper right brandishing a cavalry saber. A brass bell is tied under the throat of his white horse.
