Native Men



This is an interesting picture of two Native American Men from 1923. The one man is dressed in a traditional manner, and is holding a well decorated scabbard for a 30-30. the other man is dressed in fine 3 piece suit. It shows the choice this culture had to make at this time . . . stick with the traditional ways, or become westernized.

  1. I truly enjoy all the photos Mr. PJM shows here but those of Native Americans, showing the cultures and peoples, are simply magnificent. Thank you.

  2. I am not familiar with the Plains Indians, so don't know to which Nation these men belong, but today many are managing to have it both ways. Cherokee children are learning their native language and culture along side English ways. One foot in each world.
