Washington—Stamps have carried art portraying Native Americans all over the world, and now they’re circling the globe again in a cyberspace exhibition.
Courtesy of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum Hollow Horn Bear, who fought in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, was featured in the first 14-cent stamp issued by the U.S. Other facts, including the artist who designed the stamp and the medium in which the art was created, are a click away. A 1980 stamp featuring Sequoyah, the Cherokee man who completed a ground-breaking syllabary of his native language in 1821, is based on a 1965 portrait.
A 1968 stamp depicting Chief Joseph is based on a portrait painted from life by artist Cyrenius Hall in 1878, which resides in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.
The evolution over time of national perceptions about American Indians and the technology of stamp-making are both evident in the online exhibit. For Native American subject matter, the committee shifted its focus starting in the 1990s to original artwork showing Native American themes, and photography of Native Americans’ art.

For now I’ll have to satisfied with Ctrl L to select all text in the Omnibox and rewriting me search query.
We offer everything to make your life a little bit easier…mailboxes, packaging, copies, fax, notary, shredding, passport photos, ink and toner cartridge refills, office supplies, gifts, greeting cards and more!
Conveniently located in the middle of Long Beach, California, and down the street from the all new Retro Row, we are here to help. The collaboration between the two museums, with contributions from the Library of Congress, expands viewers’ understanding of both familiar recent postage and less-familiar stamps dating back to the late 19th century. Accompanying the stamp in the exhibition is a photo of the cover of a 1975 publication of the English-Cherokee syllabary from the American Indian museum’s collection.
A modern art work of Chief Joseph’s picture in beads from the nearby National Museum of the American Indian is displayed with the stamp to show a different interpretation. An 1898 engraving of an Indian in horseback pursuit of a buffalo gives way in a century to the 1998 lithography stamp commemorating Olympian Jim Thorpe, of the Sac and Fox Nation, as one of the most significant figures of the 20th century. Even when significant people are featured, they tend to be more educational in nature, Lera said.

I’d bet they did all sorts of research that said not enough people used it to add the extra screen real estate but I did. The search query is now in the Omnibox (aka the address bar) of the browser itself which is a bit jarring. We have a friendly group that can provide USPS and FedEx options so packing, mailing and shipping is always easy. Our store is easily accessed by the neighborhood, whether it’s on foot, skateboard, bicycle or car.


The 1998 Jim Thorpe stamp shows not only his face as a young man, but also an inset of him competing in the Olympic Games of 1912. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
The lower search bar was useful for tweaking the search terms when I didn’t find what I looking for. I’m used to editing my search query on a webpage not looking for search terms in the address. We provide security for your mail and receive any package that may otherwise be sent back to the shipper when you’re not home to receive it. Google is blurring the line between the browser itself and webpages but I cannot understand why. The technology of the museum’s website enables viewers to magnify images to almost the size of their computer screen—allowing the artistry of the stamps to be seen in even more detail than a magnifying glass could provide. I describe to the best of my ability , I am no expert on any items , I am just a normal person like you . I do not try to cheat anyone , I always try to tell the truth , but I am human and sometimes we make mistakes .
