|Found: Indian Basket Maker, Northern Wisconsin #5. Real Photo Post Card. Kruxo EKD circa 1923.|
Our friend from Madison, Tom Jones, has been researching Ho-Chunk baskets and we thought of him when we dredged up this real photo post card portrait of a basket maker from the recesses of our collection. He has contributed to important books examining photographs of native peoples mainly People of the Big Voice: Photographs of Ho Chunk Families by Charles Van Schaik and For a Love of His People: The Photography of Horace Poolaw.
