Women and Warriors of the Plains
The Pioneer Photography of Julia E. Tuell
Julia Tuell arrived in Lame Deer, Montana, in 1906 with her schoolmaster husband and lived among the Northern Cheyenne. She also lived briefly among the Sac and Fox in Oklahoma and finally with the Lakota on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Her constant companion was an 8x10 Kodak camera which she used to create this incredible collection of photographs. Because Julia was a member of the communities that she photographed, she was given access other photographers may not have had. In fact, she was befriended and taught the Cheyenne language by the great chief American Horse. This is by far one of the best and most important collections of photos documenting the Plains people. Includes rare Cheyenne ceremonial photos, dances, communities, warriors, women, children, and much more. Highly recommended.
