Pine Ridge Agency Day School Drawings
About the Project
Created circa 1904 at the Pine Ridge Agency Day School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of the Oglala Lakota in South Dakota. This collection includes 13 drawings. All but four are accompanied by short handwritten essays regarding the scene, and most are signed by the artist who created them. These were probably produced as a class exercise in composition and penmanship. Included are pictures of children's homes, the Red Cloud Indian School, and a buffalo hunt. PLEASE NOTE: NAA staff has asked simply for transcriptions of the text contained in these pages; please do not describe the images, thank you.
