Cabinet Photo of a Kickapoo Indian Brave in Fancy Dress Genoa Nebraska c1900

Here is a cabinet photograph of a Kickapoo Indian Brave in fancy semi-white mans clothing. Photograph by Stock of Genoa Nebraska. It is a probability this photo was of a student at the The Indian Industrial School at Genoa, Nebraska. This school was the fourth non-reservation boarding institution established by the Office of Indian Affairs. The facility was completed in 1884 and operated until 1934. The facility opened on February 20, 1884, and, like other such schools, its mission was to educate and teach Christianity and European-American culture to Native American children for assimilation. The village of Genoa was selected because the Federal Government already owned the former Pawnee Reservation property there; however, existing buildings at the site were unsuitable and in poor repair. The Pawnee had been removed to Indian Territory in 1879. 4 ¼ x 6 ½. Light staining on the mount edges. The free listing tool.
