Title

Indian Village

Subject

Cotton States Exposition

Description

View of Native Americans from the Indian Exhibit located in the Midway of the Cotton States and International Exposition. This exhibit featured 15 tipis and a theater where audiences could apparently watch traditional dances and ceremonies reenacted. With the extermination of its peoples and the destruction of their way of life, the Native American culture seemed to be vanishing across the country. Expositions and attractions at world fairs wanted to capitalize on the public's interest in the American Indians. The Indian Village at the Cotton States and International Exposition portrayed the Native Americans as primitive, a cultural loss necessary in the greater fight for progress.
