DescriptionGHOST DANCE AT FT. SILL - INDIAN TERRITORY - BOUDOIR CARD - ca.1890. A faded image which shows a religious dance that held the last hopes of a dying people. The Ghost Dance was founded by Wovoka of the Nevada Piutes, fostered by Kicking Bird and Sitting Bull of the Sioux, and ultimately ended in the massacre at Wounded Knee. The Ghost Dance Religion was practiced at Native American strongholds like the Pine Ridge Reservation, and this caused the U.S. Army to send thousands of troops to quell the "uprising." The religion also led to the death of Sitting Bull by the hands of Indian policemen and soldiers. This image shows a dance circle and is identified on the reverse in pencil as, "Ghost Dance at trader's store - Ft. Sill - 1890". The card has breaks at the bottom corners, and staining on the top left, however the transfer retains good contrast and much detail can be seen within the group. A rare image of a "Ghost Dance" ceremony.
