Facsimile of an Original Indian Drawing of a Ceremonial Dance
Drawn with colored crayons and pencils by Big Back, a Cheyenne.
For those of you who are not subscribed to my Yahoo Newsletter, I wanted to be sure and let you know about my new web site U.S. History Images. I started creating it last April. I decided that since I had so many books that focused on United States history, that I would create another site for just those images. It’s a big, long term commitment; it took me almost three months to get the last set of images online. So far I’ve included drawings and photographs from the discovery and conquest of North America and the Native Americans who were there when the Europeans arrived. I’m still deciding whether it’s appropriate to include South American indians on this site or not. I’d love to hear your thoughts on that. I am using a ten volume set on United States history as my outline for time periods and events. I plan on adding images in chronological order as I find time, while still adding images to the Public Domain Images on my other site. I know, I know – I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. That’s what summer vacation does to me; it makes me feel invincible!
One thought on “U.S. History Images”
May I call you Karen? I just discovered your website and am awed, fasinated and inspired. But more importantly. I am amazed at the depth of your energy and commitment. Do all of your art, putting so much material for the general public take an lot of time and energy. All of that is separate from your other roles.
In terms of whether or not to add material re the South american Indians, I would encourage you to do so. Many of the South American and North American Indigenous populations consider the two Americas as simply the Americas with no political lines separating the Americas.
I just want to thank you for making your work and resources available to us, the general population.
