New Postcards of American Indians

Kiowa Indian Girls in Buckskin dress

There are many photos of American Indians in CUL Digital Collections.

We recently added 9 postcards of American Indians, including three of Quanah Parker, into the Lawrence T. Jones III Texas Photographs. Quanah Parker was a well-known Comanche chief, whose Caucasian mother was captured at a young age and raised by the tribe. CUL Digital Collections also contains the the earliest extant image of Quanah Parker’s mother, Cynthia Ann Parker.

Shown right is a recently-uploaded gelatin silver postcard of two young Kiowa women from 1913 entitled “Kiawa [sic] Indian Girls in Buckskin dress.”
