Native Americans

Below you will find images relating to the Native Americans.

Please be aware that these images have been taken from books, photos, postcards, and magazines from the mid-1800's to the early 1900's, and they often reflect the prejudices, stereotypes, and ignorance of that time. Terms that are now considered disrespectful were at one time commonplace and are included here as they appeared in the original source material in an attempt to provide an historical context for these images. They do not represent my own personal viewpoint in anyway.

While the vast majority of images come from my personal collection, when necessary, I have used public domain images from SIRIS, the Smithsonian Institution Research Information System. It is a terrific resource, although not all the materials there are in the public domain. If you want to reuse images labeled as being from SIRIS, be sure to read their copyright information.

These images are free for you to use any way you want with just a couple of exceptions. Please read my Terms of Use for more information.
