Native American Depictions and the Question of Authenticity

For the most part, the stereocards and picture postcards of the 1900s were meant to provide viewers with a sense of authenticity. Photography couldn’t be easily manipulated at this point in time, and this resulted in the public’s prompt acceptance of any photograph as truth. Many people purchased postcards under the notion that they were viewing true-to-life depictions of peoples and places from faraway lands.
