An Indian Tepee Souvenir Postcard

indian-teepee.jpgindian-canada.JPG

Although a completely unflattering image of our friends in the First Nations (not too mention awkward layout and graphic design), this souvenir has one redeeming and wonderfully progressive feature. There is a small body of text, under the main photograph, that reads “Original owners of our country”. Given the date of this piece, I would think that this is an extremely modern point of a view for the time. Dust off your history textbooks to get a feel for the nature of dialogue around indigenous cultures during this period (and still today) and you will understand why this is so ahead of its time.
