image of Rain-In-The-Face has been attributed to the photographer,
F. Jay Haynes, and it appears on page 198 of the book Following the Frontier by Freeman Tilden. Although no date is given

as the photographer for the group shot from Standing Rock,

grave can no longer be located. A dam gave way, and the
resulting flood waters washed many graves away. Many bodies
(most?) were not found. Rain's grave was one of those washed
away. — Tokaouspa
