Acts the Bear, Cherry Creek, 1922

Acts the Bear


Acts the Bear p.2


These and all other documents like them posted here are in the public domain. They are from the National Archives branch in Kansas City, Missouri. All are from Record Group 75. They are posted in order to make them available to those who would not otherwise have access to the materials. They are also posted in order to educate and inform others about the living conditions on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, South Dakota  in 1922.

I feel as if I’m been remiss in posting these social surveys of late. Will try to get them back on a regular schedule asap. As usual, if anyone wants a survey name listed on the index (can be found via the “search box”, please leave a comment indicating  your interest and I will post the survey as soon as possible.

    Found this document quite interesting to read…haven’t looked at such papers before and found it interesting what they kept a record of at that time.

    I find these very interesting indeed. It’s wonderful to be able to read these documents and its a tribute to these people and their lives. I love reading old documents about the way people lived, it brings our forebears alive.

    I find these documents to be such a sad testimony. Are we only as good as our property? What about those six dead children? I feel the look of these pages contributes to the sadness. You have this nearly transparent paper where the words on the reverse side show through as though it were another language.
