Postcard Views of Indigenous Peoples

...is a collection of images drawn from the large and growing collection of early Western Canadian postcards developed by the University Archives and Special Collections at the University of Saskatchewan Library.

Most of the cards were produced in the first two decades of the 20th century. The collection includes posed studio portraits as well as depictions of camps, powwows, parades, totem poles and residential schools. The originals may be viewed in the University Archives and Special Collections reading room. The main titles are reproduced from the text used on the original cards.
