Native Americans From The 19th And 20th Century

The director Paul Ratner was interested in researching old photos of indigenous peoples when he worked on the movie “Moses on the Mesa”. This film is a true story of Solomon Bibo, a German Jewish immigrant who became governor of a Native American tribe in late 1880s.
“What has been most gratifying to me about researching old photos of Native Americans is when the relatives of the people featured in the photos discover them through our popular Facebook page,” noted Ratner. “Many of them have never seen these photos and are excited to find them. It is also exciting when folks correctly identify the people and the tribes pictured in the photos since the archives or vintage photo auctions often have incorrect or incomplete information. I feel like through this process we are reclaiming some lost history.”
