Wearing their traditional clothing, these men and women from the crow tribe were taken over a century ago and are evidence of a life that was once was.
Today, these photos of these men and women staring boldly into the camera offer us a glimpse into their world that’s long been forgotten.
Children of the Large-Beaked Bird
Many many many years ago, long before European colonists arrived and settled in the Americas, a tribe resided in what’s now known as the state of Ohio. The Hidatsa, a nearby group of Native Americans, christened these people as the Apsáalooke, or “children of the large-beaked bird.”
Later on, the French would mistranslate the name as the “people of the crows”, and from then on, the tribe became known as the Crow.
