This picture shows the ingenious method Indians used to move their camp and belongings. The poles from the tipis were configured onto the horses to create a sled of sort, and then there things were loaded onto the sled. These were called Travois. They were almost as efficient as having wheels.

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.

Today's picture shows two Native Americans in front of their camp and tipis. The interesting thing is they are beside a camera, and are looking at a roll of negatives, presumably exposures of their camp and family. The picture was taken in 1913, so one would presume that the person who took this picture also had taken pictures earlier and was sharing those results with these men.
