Some Interesting Kiowa Drawings

I came across this yesterday on Slate.com:

A Kiowa Warrior’s Drawings of Captivity and Assimilation, 1877

The third drawing is particularly interesting to me. It’s a pretty good representation of the scene one would see standing today on Interstate 44 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, facing west. The buildings around the Old Post Quadrangle are depicted, along with the Old Post Chapel, and the blockhouse on Signal Mountain.
