Olla Bearers and Indian Detours: New Mexico Indians as Tourist Attractions

ID : 83646   
« back to classes page
We will explore how promoters created romantic and stereotyped images of Native American communities "little changed since Coronado first viewed them" to draw tourists to New Mexico. Through books, postcards, pamphlets, maps, pageants, and brochures, entrepreneurs like Charles Lummis, the Santa Fe Railway, the Fred Harvey Company, Erna Fergusson, J.R. Willis, Ward Hicks, and the State Tourist Bureau successfully promoted a growing industry, with mixed consequences for the "colorful" natives.
