History of the Indian Tribes of North America

This original, hand-colored lithograph comes from the 1870 octavo edition of McKenney & Hall’s History of the Indian Tribes of North America. An admirer and supporter of the American Indians, Thomas McKenney spent his tenure in office fighting for their cause and preserving their legacy through a gallery of paintings that were commissioned by various artists. Unfortunately, the original paintings burned in a fire, and all that is left to remember these Indians are the lithographs found in History which were modeled off the paintings.
