Under Notable Osage People why is there no mention of Clarence L. Tinker, the first Native American General in the US Army? See Wikipedia for more details…

Thank you for that suggestion. General Tinker has been added to the Notable Osage.

The article was almost good. The picture with President Calvin Coolidge and 4 Native Americans is not true.
They are not Osages. Their features are foriegn. Osage men do not wear coonskin caps and gaunlet gloves.
The year is around 1925. Osage men wore business suits. Some Osage’s wore otter caps.
The picture of President Coolidge and 4 Native Americans is “Not Osages”. The picture should be corrected.

Thank you for your comment and your support of New World Encyclopedia as an accurate knowledge source.

Regarding the photograph. You may well be correct. Interestingly, one of the Native Americans is wearing a business suit.

I will try to investigate further, and if it is questionable remove it from our article. However, the photograph is listed in the Library of Congress (http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/94508991) with the information “President Calvin Coolidge posed, full-length portrait, standing, facing front, with four Osage Indians; White House in the background.” Therefore, if you wish to correct it in other uses you would have to contact the Library of Congress.
