Self Esteem, Cherry Creek, 1922

Self Esteem

 

Self Esteem p.2

These documents from the National Archives in Kansas City, Missouri are in the public domain. They can be found in Record Group 75.  Content reflects the mindset of the currently unidentified 1922 Social Survey taker in 1922. Information is posted in order to make it available to those to whom it would otherwise be inaccessible. Documents are also posted in an effort to inform and educate people about the living conditions on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, South Dakota, 1922.

Does Bob Dylan trip your musical traps?

If Dylan’s music is part of your musical treasure trove then stream into www.kkfi.org on Thursday at 7 pm for the Thursday Night Special’s presentation of Bob Dylan: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.  I wonder what James Joyce would think about this application of the title of his little tome?  Would he see it as a form of flattery? Why not? Afterall–both Joyce and Dylan are great writers–one prose and the other a poetic songwriter. Surely an Irishman would appreciate such an association with music? Well, no matter all around.

Well folks this little photo essay project can’t quite seem to get any traction via my feet.  So– I’m curious if anyone else has seen similar renditions of these spiritual concepts in other street art murals anywhere.  Please do enjoy these images because since I photographed the originals they’ve been defaced. The mural can be found on Cesar Chavez Blvd leading into the West Bottoms in Kansas City, Missouri. Or it “could” the last time I did a drive by.  Your thoughts regarding the art, the concepts, the technique, the symbols, et al, are welcome. Links to similar murals are also welcome. I  find this mural very compelling on several symbolic levels. The easily recognizable Christian symbols have been given an individual twist with the corn people, spaceman, and the depiction of the people in the tree. Some things are wide open. I’m wondering about the things that are “suggested”.  Anyone care to venture some speculations or hard core information?

I’m all ears–fingers–eyes.

Bad Warrior, Eagle Butte, 1922

Bad Warrior

Bad Warrior

 

Bad Warrior p.2

By switching focus from the Cherry Creek district to Eagle Butte it is possible to offer some photographs of people. This is due to the fact that there are more photographs in general from the other districts than for the Cherry Creek district. Also, apparently  people were more cooperative with the survey takers and photographer–no, I do not know the identities of these government employees for the 1922 survey.  According to the survey Bad Warrior had sold some land.  I think the house itself speaks to the issue of prosperity.  And in an attempt to address certain potential questions–hunger often prompted the slaughter of cattle before the time deemed appropriate by the district’s Head Farmer. Head Farmers were White men who were put in charge of teaching White agricultural and cattle raising practices to Indian people.  But this was not the beginning nor the end of the scope of the Head Farmers’ duties–one might consider them the social/cultural/legal enforcement authorities of assimilation policy.  Many of them made it their business to know, in order to control, every aspect of the lives of the Indian Wards of the Government. Some were good people—and others were not so decent.

All materials are in the public domain from the National Archives in Kansas City, MO.  Documents are from Record Group 75. These documents are posted in order to make them available to people who would not otherwise have access to them. They are  posted with much respect for the people represented.  This information is also presented in order to educate and inform others about the living conditions on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in 1922, South Dakota.

Abraham Bull Head p. 2

 

These documents and photograph are all from Record Group 75, National Archives, Kansas City, Missouri. All materials are in the public domain. They are posted here to make them available to people who would not otherwise have access. They are also posted in order to educate and inform regarding the living conditions on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in 1922, South Dakota. Take note that this post is for Abraham Bull Head of the Eagle Butte District.  There are more Cherry Creek District surveys. I thought it might be good to offer documents from other districts as well.
