Native Nature

PC-DS 1793_Front.jpeg

The post cards used in this exhibit highlight Native American influences across the United States. These three post cards are from Native American land and have significant features of their history.

The first card is of Mirror Lake in Snowy Range, Wyoming. The feature of Native American history in this National Park is one of religion. The Native Americans would worship and hold meetings in the mountains and in the valley where Mirror Lake is located. 

The second post card is of Superstition Mountain in the Superstition Wilderness in Arizona. Native Americans had myths and lore about the mountains and their surrounding areas. One large myth is of a hole that leads to the netherworld that is located within the mountain area. 

The third post card is of Beardsley Park in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The Native Americans lived on the land and used it for daily life. The flower that is planted through out the park and indigenous to the land is the Mountain Laurel and was used by the Native Americans for a multitude of reasons.
