From 1875-78, twenty-one Plains Indians held prisoner at Fort Marion near St. Augustine, Florida created a peerless collection of drawings and watercolors depicting their lives and cultures. Among the most prolific was Tichkematse (1857-1932) a.k.a. Squint Eyes, a Cheyenne man went on to work for the Smithsonian.

Red Fox James, a Blackfoot Indian, rode horseback from state to state seeking approval for a day to honor Indians. On Dec. 14, 1915, he presented the endorsements of 24 state governments at the White House. There is no record, however, of such a national day being proclaimed. (Library of Congress)

Surrender Speech by Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce
“I am tired of fighting.  Our chiefs are killed.  Looking Glass is dead.  Toohulhulsoteis is dead.  The old men are all dead.  It is the young men who say yes or no.  He who led the young men is dead.  It is cold and we have no blankets.  The little children are freezing to death.  My people, some of them, have run away to the hills and have no blankets, no food.  No one knows where they are–perhaps freezing to death.  I want to have time to look for my children and see how many I can find.  Maybe I shall find them among the dead.  Hear me, my chiefs.  I am tired.  My heart is sick and sad.  From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”
