This is the portrait of a Cheyenne warrior known as "Red Sleeve" (sometimes also called "Red Armed Panther").

The portrait seems to date back to 1879.
The photographer was Laton Alton Huffman (1854-1931).

Benson Parker is probably the name of the photographic studio where the print was made.

The description that was given of Red Sleeve is as follows:
« A good scout, a good shot and a royal good hunting companion, as I know. Fort Keogh. »
Fort Keogh was a U.S. Army camp in Montana near Miles City.
Established in 1876 (after the Battle of Little Big Horn), this fort has been is use until the early 20th century and served as a logistical base towards the end of the "Indian Wars", notably for the final battles against the Sioux and their allies.
