Apache/N'dee historian Edgar Perry continues to discuss the Apache history and culture (continues from 1st and onto 3rd videos in this series).

Close-up of a page that reads “Goddard, White Mountain Apache Texts” at the top and translation of English text into Apache/N’dee, and a close-up of Edgar Perry’s finger pointing to words; then a close-up of a newspaper (perhaps called Winners) where the headline reads, “The Fight at the Cibicu, and Nock-ay-del-klinne, Apache Medicine Man” and text below reads “From the notes of Brig. General Thomas Cruse, United States Army, retired, who fought the medicine man when he was a second lieutenant, August 30, 1881. As told by Colonel C. C. Smith, U.S. Army retired.”, then the camera pans down the page to an image of Cruse (presumably) in uniform; then a close-up of black and white image photo in The Ponca City News of three Apache men (one looks like Geronimo) and women posing for the camera, text above reads “Grim Faces of Warriors Reflect Hatred”, uppermost headline reads “Oklahoma’s Apaches Came as War Prisoners of 81 Years”; (at 1:52) Perry sitting at a table with a mic in front of him, books all around him, holding up a black and white photo of several Apache scouts seated beneath a wall of recently killed deer and turkeys hanging above — camera pulls in close; Perry with his pencil points out men in the photo; Perry starts again with the photograph as the camera zooms in; he then holds up another black and white photo of three Apache girls and a man posing and Perry points to areas with his pencil; next he shows a black and white photo of men standing in formation in front of a hospital building in the distance;  next he shows a black and white photo of three long wooden barns with pitched roofs, several white tents in rows, and soldiers standing in lines, mountains in the background; he then shows a black and white photo of a group of men with closely-shorn hair seated/grouped in barracks courtyard; Perry then holds up another photo of long row of low-slung buildings connected and painted white, mountains beyond, followed quickly by a line of four small houses with porches and two chimneys, then a brick guardhouse with a porch, a group of soldiers or prison staff posing in a line out front, then a large white hospital with a porch, big lot around it, then a wide expanse of parade ground with a few buildings at the edges and a line of soldiers posing, then a large-roofed corral and other buildings, two horse and carriages parked, then a field wherein soldiers pose next to or on their horses who lie on the ground, then a long log cabin, then a little white building (the former library); then a field with a bunch of what looks like domed tents or traditional wickiups with white and black coverings, then a line of horse, donkeys and wagons full of hay, a small building, and people standing around, then another shot of giant piles of hay and farmers standing next to them, horses in background; he then shows a picture of a cemetery with white grave markers, mountains in background, then a close-up on a monument; then an aerial shot of the corral, then a photo of soldiers on horseback lined up in formation in a field, a big white fence on one side; then back to the monument, then a field, artifacts found in the field; he then chooses a photo of a small building (the bathhouse); then a field wherein there are human-shaped targets standing and soldiers; he then tidies up all the photographs and folders; (at 17:16) a shot of the bookshelves in the room, which some close-ups on the titles; (at 18:19) in another room in the museum, Perry now holding the mic points to a row of handmade saddlebags with different designs, then to a photo or paining on the wall of three Apache girls in traditional attire, then a photo of a line of crown dancers in elaborate headgear posing, then up to a painting of an Apache man in a black hat, and back to Perry speaking, and then he points to a burden basket (a small basket with beaded strips of hide hanging from it) hanging on the wall, and then up to two cradleboards hanging; Perry then walks through a door into another room where he points out an army barrack display — bed, trunk, radio, stove (off screen), and a flag hanging on the wall; in another room he stands next to a display case with different styles of baskets, and an elongated Apache fiddle/violin and bow; an overhead shot of rock specimens; back to Perry showing a decorated Apache fiddle and curved bow; ends with shots of other artifacts (jugs, a tomahawk and other things) in a display case.
