TitleNative American/Western Photograph Collection Finding Aid
AbstractThis collection contains over over 140 glass plate negatives, cabinet cards, and assorted prints. The images are primarily of Native American peoples, cowboys, and "Boomer" settlers in Indian Territory (Oklahoma) during the late-1880s through the early-1900s. The principal tribes represented include the Ponca, Kiowa, Comanche, Sac and Fox, Otoe, Pawnee and Apache. Many of the images were taken by prominent western photographers of the period including Thomas Croft, William S. Prettyman, George Cornish, and William E. Irwin. There are also fifteen photographs of Sioux Indians and U.S. soldiers taken by the Northwestern Photo Company during the 1890/91 conflict at Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota.
