In an effort to improve my irritable state of mind these past few weeks, I’ve made an effort to avoid political news (and my Facebook feed for that matter). I came across this neat site called ‘Vintage News‘. If you want to burn a few hours clicking around, I highly recommend.
Check out these wonderful photos of the Native Americans at the Crow reservation. Truly a glimpse into a world passing buy. I have a few images here that I’ve touched up in Photoshop, but definitely take the time to check out the collection.
I’ve been meaning to look more deeply into Native Americans in the 18th century ever since reading Charles C. Mann’s ‘fantastic book ‘1491’. So so much I don’t know.
Thanks! Other interesting, IMHO, books you might like are “1491” and “1493.” Disclosure: haven’t yet read the 1493, book.
Oh shoot the book I actually read was 1491…thanks for the correction!
