Shoshone Indian Woman Postcard Friendship Friday

 
This postcard is part of a series of postcards made for Grand Teton National Park Wyoming.  Published in the 1950's or early 1960's. She is beading a belt for her chief.

I have missed a few PFF because of our RVing trips and house projects.  Hopefully can get to a regular schedule here.  The previous post has another Native American postcard from this series.  Check out

Thank you so much for posting this postcard--what a beautiful face. There is a feeling of nostalgia about this one. I really like it.

Happy PFF!

I cannot tell even from the closeup of the card, but is she beading or quilling? Wonderful card, regardless.

It's so interesting to see traditional customs on postcards. If we're not careful it's all there will be left.

I always like postcards of craftspeople doing their crafts.

A belt with flowers for a chief? I wonder if he ever wore it. But serious, I once visited a pow wow and was overwhelmed by the colours and beauty of the costumes. happy PFF.

Very interesting to see the things that is just nature to the American Indians. To bad more of us aren't a little more like them huh?
Love seeing your post cards :)
