Overview

"Native Americans were invited to the Trans Mississippi and International Exposition in Omaha in 1898 to be part of an event known as the Indian Congress. More than 545 delegates representing 35 tribes from all over the country attended - including Geronimo and his followers, then prisoners of war. Rinehart, the exposition's official photographer, and his assistant Adolph Muhr made more than 500 glass-plate negatives depicting Native Americans in their traditional dress, now housed at Haskell Indian Nations University and regarded as one of the best photographic documentations of Indian leaders from this era." "This book provides an unusual perspective on the Rinehart collection. It features one hundred images printed from the original negatives made by Rinehart and Muhr at the Congress and over the course of the next two years. It also includes 14 essays by modern Native American writers, artists, and educators - some of them descendants of the individuals photographed - reflecting on the place of these images in their heritage." Beyond the Reach of Time and Change is not another coffee-table book of historical Indian photographs but rather a conversation between Indian people of a century ago and today.
