Art of Winold Reiss - Mountain Flower -- Native American

Continuing our series of vintage postcards featuring the art of Winold Reiss, this card is Mountain Flower. From the description on back of card:  "MOUNTAIN FLOWER -- Blackfeet Indian Maiden -- a symbol of her generation. While her customs bespeak the white man's culture she is a primitive modern, for her ways are those of her ancestors.

The Blackfeet Indian Reservation adjoins Glacier National Park in the Montana Rockies on the East, served by Great Northern Railway."
