Indian on Pony
This picture was taken in the early 1900's and shows a Native American on horseback. The picture is a hand-tinted black and white photo. I love this picture because it shows an Indian out on the plains. By the time the picture was taken, the traditional way of life for the Indians had come to a close, but the man is old enough that certainly he lived through those times. When I see pictures like this, it really makes me wish that the authorities of the day had some how figured out an arrangement that would have allowed the Indians to continue undisturbed in their traditional way of life.
