Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Warriors: Photographs by Gertrude Käsebier

April 13, 2011 – June 15, 2011

Museum: Ripley Center

Location: International Gallery, Sublevel 3

In 1898, inspired by a grand parade of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West troupe en route to New York City’s Madison Square Garden, photographer Gertrude Käsebier (1852-1934) began a project to photograph Sioux Indians traveling with the show. On view are approximately 60 original platinum and gum-bichromate photographs printed from original glass negatives, pictograph drawings made by the Sioux Indians while in the studio, historic camera and studio equipment, and items representing Buffalo Bill’s Wild West from collections of the museum and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
