 Reservation Blackfeet, 1882-1945:
 A Photographic History of Cultural Survival

By: William E. Farr

Excerpts From Back Cover 

For a generation of nostalgic whites, the Blackfeet Indians of the north central Montana plains epitomized the romantic "vanishing America."  This photographic documentary of reservation life replaces the myth with the complex reality of a culture in transition.

"Farr, professor of history at the University of Montana, introduces us to the reservation Blackfeet at a turning point in their history.  The buffalo herds had gone, the tribe had suffered a starvation period and their only course was an abrupt acculturation.  Their dependence on the federal government is illustrated in photos of 'issue days' and other governmental activities.  Pictures of tribal ceremonies bear evidence of white cultural intervention --- a sewing machine, canvas tents, high-button shoes.  Farr keeps his narrative to a minimum, letting the photographs tell their own dramatic story." --- Publishers Weekly.
