Portraits of Change: Oklahoma Indians 1920-1970 [12 Images]
The photography of Horace Poolaw, Kiowa, currently on display at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York, documents a fascinating time of tradition and transition for American Indians in Oklahoma. The exhibition, entitled "For a Love of His People: The Photography of Horace Poolaw," pulls from a roughly 50-year period, beginning in the 1920s and running up through the late 1960s. Poolaw's lens captured "the warmth of local family and community while also demonstrating the mobility and involvement of Native peoples nationally in events such as World War II and the advent of consumerism," according to a release from the Smithsonian.
"For a Love of His People: The Photography of Horace Poolaw" opened on Saturday at NMAI in New York, and runs through February 15, 2015.
