Penn & Teller did a special about Indian Gaming Casinos on their Showtime show, "Bullshit". Quite enlightening. About 95% of all the money earned at indian casinos is distributed to about twenty indians. The rest of the indians hardly get a thing. Seems to me like indians are now starving themselves.
The only "badass" indians are the Seminole. They're the only tribe that didn't sign a treaty with the US government.
You realize that there are 500 Indian nations and 371 treaties, right? So by mathematics alone, you're wrong. And most of those 371 treaties were with the same tribal groups repeatedly. There are literally SCORES of tribes who never signed treaties. Perhaps you might have intended to comment on the only tribe who had never been defeated in a military conflict with the U.S.? That would be the Hopi, by the way.
I hate to rain on the parade, because these do look very cool. But, during this time, it became popular among some photographers to go out and get the Natives to dress up in stereotypical garb for photo ops. Usually it was improper outfits and this was an insult. I know some of these are Edward S. Curtis, who you should look up, but I would guess there are probably Alexander Gardner photos too, which is possibly worse.
Fuck yea for natives! tohono o odham here!
#25 Looks like they are about to go battle
Those bastards are everywhere in ND
#6 if he saw that the guys on Jersey shore were sporting his hair cut, I wouldn't want to be them, man is scary looking.
And by "rare" you mean google "Edward S. Curtis photography" or "pictures of Native Americans"?
Do you know, when your laxative is going to work?
"camera took soul"
Sure wish they would've taught us to grow giant corn! Re-spect
Wonderful pics and that is that needs to be said
Anyone think #12 looks like Bob Einstein? Aka Super Dave Osborne
If they are so badass why are they all dead? White man FTMFW
~~ YIPPIE ~~
Your souls, they've been stoled!
hmmmm, this are some awesome pictures…but whenever i imagined a native american (their facial features at least, etc)…..only a few of the ones here actually look native american to me…..the others just kinda look mexican…..?
That is why Mexicans have a greater right to be in this continent that you European descendants.
#3 come at me bro
If they were BA they would have invented ships that could sail across the Atlantic so they could conquer Europe.
they had sick HQ digital cameras back then….
# 23 looks like Chief Wild Eagle off F-Troop, when are these guys ancestors claim back their ancestral lands
I don’t mean to be a kill joy but the so called “Native Americans” emigrated here just like the rest of us. Regardless if it was 50,000 years ago or 200 years ago makes no difference and until someone produces proof that a species of Homo sapiens developed independent of the ones that came out of Africa than there is no such thing as a “Native American Homo sapien.
Native Americans are AWESOME!
Just ask a Mammoth, oh wait…………….never mind
around the time these photos were taken, white photographers went around with trunks of headdresses, clothes and makeup to make native Americans look more native and wild. A lot of photos of native Americans are not accurate of what native Americans life really was like. Not to say that all of these were doctored like that though. Still cool but the title is bad.
