Indian Postcards

During the vacationing 1950's and 1960's, tourists mobbed Indian Country, and shutterbugs published postcards with "Indian pictures" for tourists to send back home.  Some stereotyped the Indian.  But many also accurately portrayed the beautiful human qualities of the people.  We've chosen the best for this series. Visit Indian Postcards.


Kachina Portfolio

In 1969, master artist, lithographer, and friend of the Hopi people, Homer H. Boelter, created a portfolio of Hopi kachinas.  The portfolio was limited to 1000 copies, with 16 plates of exceptionally beautiful work, and the work was dedicated to the Hopi people.  Each of the 16 plates are presented for you to see in the Kachina Portfolio
