The Indians of the Americas Prior to the Civil War

A fascinating exploration of Native Americans in both South and North America is kept in the Delaware Historical Society’s rare book collection. Below is an 1846 publication on the manners, customs, art, music, government, dress and culture of numerous Indian tribes throughout the Americas- a full century before Hollywood influenced the way original inhabitants of the Americas were viewed by non-native Americans.

This Old Book appears on this blog every Wednesday morning.
