19th And 20th Century Native Americans

posted May 19, 2016 by Kathy Pinna
The history of the Native American peoples is long, diverse, and complex. When Europeans came to North American shores, it became even more complex - and destructive to the Native Americans. With the invention of the camera some of the tribal groups, as well as daily and spiritual events, were documented. Some of these are shown here. (With more to come soon.)

Interesting factoid: While some individual Native Americans didn't want their photos taken - for instance, a legend says that Crazy Horse objected - there is no widespread cultural belief that taking a photo was "stealing your soul." Look at all the photos here - even photos of sacred dances!

We're sure he got over his fear - you had to ride a horse in 1891 - and he's no longer young!
