Before My people were considered Americans.  The Indians were here.  I am fascinated with these photos.  I wander what daily life was like, if only photos could talk!

  1. Fabulous pictures. You defintely convinced me to post old picture I have from Africa and Indochina. Coming soon.
    Be good

  2. These glorious photographs are starkly gentle. I look at the faces and the wrinkles and think of the history of white Europeans and could cry. Your pictures are as much a treasure as Native peoples. Thank you for posting these.

    • I loved these photos, I am going to be uploading an “amercians 2” post here soon, I hope you see it! I also wanted to say that I particularly loved your snipe hunting story! My grandfather used to take me snipe hunting down on the riverbank. We could always hear them but for some reason we just never could spot them 😉

      • Snipe hunting, real or for a prank, promise much good times shared! Thank you for reading that story; I love it since it was one of my dad’d favorite tales. 😉

Let me know what you think?
