This study group will be online.

The Richard Pohrt Jr. Collection of Native American Photography contains approximately 1,470 photographs related to Native Americans and Native American history taken mainly between 1860 and 1920 by more than 150 photographers. The majority of photographs are individual and group portraits of people from tribes west of the Mississippi, with the Apache, Cheyenne, Crow, and Lakota/Dakota being particularly well represented.

The collection contains both studio and outdoor photographs and reflects the dramatic upheavals in Native American life that occurred as a result of the expansion of the United States of America. Our speaker, Jakob Dopp, will discuss some of the challenges encountered while cataloging this collection (such as discovering misidentifications and other errors in certain photographs) as well as additional aspects of the project, including collaboration with Native American Tribal authorities and other consultants about how to appropriately deal with culturally sensitive materials and cultural dissemination.

This class meets on Thursday, January 20.

Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
