The book tells the story of 47 American Indian Tribes. Today we are including the story of 3 tribes: Manhattan, Apache, and Seneca. The entire book follows the same format, a description, and some art related to the tribe. We found this little publication to be quite interesting.

The Preface, an introduction ...
As you can see, age and elements have had some damaging effects. The "Preface" page has more damage than most. The value of vintage collectible paper is highly affected by overall condition.
We will post more from Indians of America in future posts. Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
Loved this post of Native Americans. There is a rich history of Comanche tribes in Texas among the settlers who came here. Fascinating, but sad.ReplyDelete
Fascinating reading, John. I am ashamed of the way the Indians were treated and mistreated during the invasion of their lands. I see the Coast Salish tribes up here in the Pacific Northwest, with many reservations nearby to visit. And of course casinos. L-)ReplyDelete
Thank you! That is very interesting. Here our first inhabitants were the Teutons ;-)ReplyDelete
what a neat publication.ReplyDelete
I live in the country but it was founded by India Tribes.ReplyDelete
Most of our lakes are named after Indians in and around Haliburton.
Most of our art is made by Indians out of wood, Stone, Our monuments in front of our Hospital has been handcrafted. Indian figure. At our water front. Such talent they have. Paintings like oil paintings. Leather belts, carved cases wallets. The tourist love to come to our Haliburton, Canada.
Our Indian lakes are Eagle lake, Little Lake, Sparrow lake, Buck-horn Lake, Little Bald Lake. Lake of the woods. Many more.ReplyDelete
