In this photo, we see two native Americans beside a cowboy on a bale of hay. These three guys were part of the Buffalo Bill show.
Cool photo, indeed!
Fans of Buffalo Bill
If you think these people were going into battle, you might have been wrong. This image shows a large group of Native Americans lining up in the 1890s.
They were lining up for the Famous Buffalo Bill Wild West Show to participate. Now, that is a long line!
Sacheen Little Feather
Back in the old west, Native Americans were subject to a wide array of brutal treatment for many centuries. In this photo, we see Sacheen Little Feather, who became one of the leading activist voices for Native American civil rights.
Little Feather gave a speech at the 45th Annual Academy Awards in 1973 for actor Marlon Brando, to decline the award for Best Actor, because he needed him to protest the treatment of Native American people in the show business industry.
Western Settlement of Tonopah, Nevada
This photo of the main street in the Western Settlement of Tonopah, Nevada was always full of people.
The covered wagons brought goods to the trading posts, which were either to be used for sale or for trade.
Deadwood, South Dakota
As part of the Omaha Board of Trade, a procession of stagecoaches carries passengers down a mountain road near Deadwood, South Dakota. Yes, you read it right; we said Deadwood!
This image was captured in 1889, when it was later to be the setting of the famous HBO western series "Deadwood," which showed the history of the town. Yup, are you guys mind blown? Because we are!
