Integrated families

 
Initially, it was the fawn that caught my attention in this photo, posing (sort of) among a group of people.
 
Later, as I studied the picture, I noticed the mix of white and Native American women with the men. 

Pet fawn and folks

 
Often I think (fear) that in the early days, native wives were ostracized from the white population and white female social circles. This photo gives me hope that this wasn’t always so.
 
I would so love to know more about the people in this photo…

    Great photos. It would be good to know what year same size wheel bicycles started being used.
    Cute fawn!

      Huh. I guess I assumed they were always the same size… Glad you like the photos. It’s really fun to dig them up.
