American Indian Histories and Culture - American Indian Histories and Cultures depict early contacts between European settlers and American Indians and the subsequent political, social and cultural effects upon American Indian life. Manuscripts, artwork, rare printed books, photographs, and newspapers, tell both the historical and the personal stories of the colonization of the Americas. Continuing through to the modern era, and told against the backdrop of the 19th century expansion into the "Western Frontier" right through to the civil rights movement of the mid-twentieth century, highlights both the myths and realities of the "Wild West" and American Indian cultural identity.
