Background:

These American Indian prints are from McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America.  They portray chiefs, warriors and squaws of various tribes of American Indians.

Originally published in the 1830s, these Indian prints are from an early 1900s edition published in England that had a limited run of only 200 copies.

Thomas McKenney (1785-1859) and James Hall (1793-1868) collaborated on this project, regarded by many as a landmark work on preserving a record of a disappearing culture.  McKenney, who had been Director of the Office of Indian Affairs until 1839, provided the information that Hall used to author the accompanying biographical sketches.  Hall had been an Illinois journalist and lawyer who had written extensively about the West.

Many of the paintings on which the prints are based had been destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865.  This re-inforces the importance of this work in providing a visual record of prominent Indian leaders of the early 19th century.

Provided with each print is a copy of the introductory pages of the biography authored by Hall.
