U.S. President Calvin Coolidge, tipping his hat. The hat was the special headpiece of the Smoki Indians of Prescott, Arizona. It had a rim of brilliant red and a crown of bright blue. The Smoki Indians were a fictitious tribe created in imitation of the local Hopi Indians that performed at Prescott's annual rodeo. The president was inducted into the Smoki tribe on the grounds of the White House on October 22, 1924. On June 2, 1924, President Coolidge had signed a bill granting Indians full U.S. citizenship.
