I could be wrong here, but those "indians" appear to be wearing the traditional garb of tribes connected with Plains Culture--the nomadic tribes including the Lakota, Crow, Cheyenne, Blackfoot, Arapahoe, Cree, Kiowa Apache, Comanche etc. These lived in the Plains states and not in the Southwest. 

 New Mexico tribes include the Zuni, Navaho, Pueblo--none of which wore what we see in this photograph.

I think they went "Hollywood" on the costumes.
