Look at an NDN life.

Once on display at National Museum of the American Indian in New York, “For a Love of His People: The Photography of Horace Poolaw” will go on display this November at Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. The retrospective exhibition features works by photographer Horace Poolaw (Kiowa, 1906–1984), whose black-and-white images document Native people of rural Oklahoma with affection while providing insight into the values and community life of his time....

Poolaw photographed his friends and family and events important to them—weddings, funerals, parades, fishing, driving cars, going on dates, going to war, playing baseball. For more:
