Description: 
Described in Vol. II, p. 134. Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Ah-no-je-nahge, He who stands on both Sides; the two [with Red Man] most distinguished ball-players of the Sioux tribe, in their ball-play dress, with their ball-sticks in their hands. In this beautiful and favourite game, each player is adorned with an embroidered belt, and a tail of beautiful quills or horsehair; the arms, legs, and feet are always naked, and curiously painted. (See two paintings of ball-players and further description of the game under Amusements, Nos. 428, 429, 430, and the ball-sticks among the manufactures."." Originally painted in 1835 (Truetner, 1979, p. 165). See also plate 21 in Catlin's North American Indian Portfolio.
