Tepees of the Sioux Indians, Minnesota.

Please note: this site has been retired. Items from this collection are now available at the expanded Edward E. Ayer Digital Collection.

This selection of more than 300 photographs of Midwestern Indian tribes—Menominee, Ojibwa, Winnebago, Santee, Yankton, and Yantonai—is derived from a much larger collection of over 6,000 images of North American Indians in the Newberry Library’s world-renowned Edward E. Ayer Collection.

North American Indian Photographs was funded by an award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
