Very sharp and clear black and white photograph reproduced from the original print. Many of the Native American photographs are rare and never been seen before. Native Americans in the United States are the indigenous peoples from North America now encompassed by the continental United States, including parts of Alaska and the island state of Hawaii. They comprise a large number of distinct tribes, states, and ethnic groups, many of which survive as intact political communities. The terminology used to refer to Native Americans is controversial. Photographs of Native American Tribes such as, ALASKA NATIVES, ALGONQUIAN, APACH, ARAPAHOE, BLACKFEET, CHEROKEE, CHEYENNE, CHICKASA , CHINOOK TRADE JARGON (NORTHWEST TRIBES) , CHITIMACHA, COMANCHE, CREEK, FLATHEAD, HOPI, KIOWA, LEMHI-SHOSHONE, MOHEGAN, NAVAJO, PAWNEE, PUEBLO, SEMINOLE, SHAWNEE, SHOSHONE, SIOUX (DAKOTA, LAKOTA, NAKOTA) and many more. Photographs by Men like Edward S. Curtis, Joseph Kossuth Dixon, William Henry Blackmore, Seth Eastman – and women like the Gerhard sisters – were driven to photograph the romantically exotic Native American cultures. They were curious about the fierce, proud warriors who were vanishing. And they were fueled by a desire to record the passing of a historic epoch – even as the memory of the 1876 Battle of Little Big Horn (Custer s Last Stand) was still fresh.
