Description

This book covers the years 1876 to 1877 where the Great Sioux War marked the end of the traditional lifestyles of the Native people and the beginning of their restriction to reservations

Moreover, this book represents a collection of stereo card photography of the Oglala Lakota and Arapaho Indians at northwestern Nebraska’s Red Cloud Agency, of the agency itself, and of the other sites and landmarks in the vicinity. The collection is the work of multiple photographers that were assembled by Peter T. Buckley who worked at what is now called Fort Robinson, Nebraska. Some of these particular photographs are already familiar to some historians. However, some are actually published here in this book for the first time. As a result, all of these photographs together tell a story of a land and culture in transition.
