I collect Native American postcards and have approximately 4000 featuring Indigenous peoples & cultures of the Americas, north to south. A portion of my research examines representation of Native culture in the media and I am interested in the educational use of postcards as Cultural & Public History/Anthropology. I have published on the history of Southern Plains Native cards; for a list of postcard reference books, see the bottom of this page.
a late 1800s photo showing a well dressed family and horses including a very nicely beaded bag hanging on the woman's saddle. The Blackfeet resided along the US/Canadian border and this card comes from a Postcrosser in Canada
