DescriptionLot of Three Imperial Sized Photographs of the Execution of Indian Johnnie and Joe Ibapah, Carson City, Nevada, 1906.
These execution photographs, depicting two Native Americans being hung at the Nevada State Prison, are historically important. These images represent the only known lawful Nevada executions for the time. Early in 1906, Indian Johnnie (Shoshone Tribe) and Joe Ibapah (Goshite Tribe) cut the throat of a man in Montello, Nevada. The two were apprehended, tried and convicted in Elko, Nevada. Ibapah stated in the court "We'll hang next month; yes we killed the fellow alright. I cut his throat and Johnnie held him down." On December 7, 1906 they became the first two Native Americans to be executed in the State of Nevada by due process of law. First image shows Joe and Johnnie kneeling on the gallows receiving last rites. The second image shows the pair standing with executioner tying hands behind their backs. The final image shows the men hanging below the gallows. Measures approximately 7" x 9"
