Supporting our love of history since 2003:

“The prints I ordered were exceptional in quality. The envelope it was sent in was rigid and perfect for mailing. I am a 74 year old Vietnam veteran who has been doing photography since I was a young guy. I think your website is one of the best I have seen for services and variety. Thank you, Chris”

  1. I found un unidentified Native American photo under ceremony category that I can identify. It is Mandan and part of the 4 day ceremony called the Okipa (O’kiipa). It is the photo of the man painted with the light rings on his body. I always love looking at old pictures and trying to find my own tribe and I did because I am Mandan.

  2. I pray you had a good Christmas, if it applies, but I also want to wish You and your family a Very Happy
    and Healthy New Year. I again want to thank you for all you do for those of us who want to Learn and Discover what our History was about. Since our history school books are portrayed incorrectly and incomplete, YOUR Publication is full of research that can be trusted.
    I learn something new or forgot and your publication is perfect for my mind travels as I read.

    Thank You and GOD Bless You and your Family. Meant for both of you Dave.
