Stunning Portraits of Young Navajo Boy, ca. 1907

These photographs were taken in 1905 or 1907 by photographer Carl Everton Moon (1879–1948). According to the Huntington Library, Carl Moon’s title read “Navajo Boy. Che-bah-nah.”

There is conflicting information about the identity of the individual depicted. According to the Huntington Library, the man is Diné (Navajo), and the word “Bi-yazh” is transcribed from the print. According to the Getty Museum, the model may actually be Esikio Tobar (1893–1950) of the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas, wearing Diné (Navajo) dress.
