Some of these cards are really nice too. I don't have many cards showing our Indians but do have a few more.

Here are just a couple of them.

bujutsu, you have some great postal cards. I love the Ute Indian chief card. During the early 1900's, my great uncle (Rush Stevens) was the chief surgeon for the Ute Indian tribe working out of Fillmore, Utah. There are not very many postal cards of the Utes.

I wonder who the "paleface" is.

wow - that is interesting ncbuckeye

Your uncle must have had some great experiences to tell with them. My understanding is that Native American Indian cards are few in number overall. I have been fortunate to pick up a few but not many.

I will post them in here later too.

My SCF Postulate: there is just about nothing that you can add to your collection that will not, sooner or later, be fodder for a post to SCF.

I've been buying postcards out of bargain boxes lately. One result has been a "US SouthWest" divider in my own, uh, Retained Bargains Box. Lots of museum cards (mostly paintings, some 'native' jewelry & fabrics) and several postcards similar to the above.

On to the 'scan & post' list they go!

Cheers,

As a Student of Native American History I find that it is saddly humorus seeing the blatant racist terms used to discribe the Native American. Though the cards are queit nice!
The use of "Squaw" in reference to Native American women is considered offense, but consider that the women is Cherokee which is an Iroqoin langauge while Sqauw (squa)is an Algonquian term for a women. Papoose is also Algonquian as well! Also the use of the word Savage to indicate a Native American!

I'm 1/3 "Mohawk" Native American. Even the name Mohawk is slanderous to the Natives. It was a blanket term given to a lot of different tribes/bands that have a similar origin called Mohegan.

From Wiki: (And this isn't even quite accurate)
In the Mohawk language, the people say that they are from Kanien'kehá:ka or "Flint Stone Place". As such, the Mohawks were extremely wealthy traders as other nations in their confederacy needed their flint for tool making. Their Algonquian-speaking neighbors (and competitors), the People of "Muh-heck Heek Ing" (Food Area Place), a people who the Dutch called "Mohicans" or "Mahicans", called the People of Ka-nee-en Ka "Maw Unk Lin" or "Bear People". The Dutch heard and wrote this as "Mohawks". This is why the People of Kan-ee-en Ka are often referred to as "Mohawks". The Dutch also referred to the Mohawk as "Egils" or "Maquas". The French adapted these terms as Aigniers, Maquis, or called them by the generic "Iroquois", which is a French derivation of the Algonquian term for the Five Nations: "Snake People""

But anyway...Neat cards!

Here are several from the Arizona area. By this time the snake dance and the blanket weaving were primarily for the benefit of tourists.

I found a fairly unflattering card of Running Antelope. Among paper money collectors he has a far more recognizable portrait, which appears on the 1899 $5 silver certificate. It's a very popular (and expensive) piece of currency these days, so the only example I have appears as a reprint on a souvenir card.
