ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Taken 1898. Omaha, Nebraska, USA, United States
(Boston Public Library)
"The Meskwaki are an amalgamated tribe of the Sauk (Sac) and Meskwaki (Fox) tribes. Though socio-economically and culturally similar, they were politically independent until the Meskwaki’s war with the French severely crippled the Fox tribe’s power base. The combined Sac & Fox tribes were further displaced Native Americans west of the Mississippi river following Presidential Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act of 1830, to a reservation in what is now part of Oklahoma. Twenty-seven Meskwaki enlisted in the U.S. Army in World War II. The shoulder guard patterns were sourced from several contemporaneous water colour paintings of the Meskwaki tribes."
– Jordan J. Lloyd
This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
