The Photographers and the Plains Indian exhibit was one of the first new exhibits in the Nebraska History Museum after its nineteen-month renovation. The exhibit explores how photographs influenced Americans' perceptions of Plains tribal people. The exhibit gives visitors a look into how both photographers and their native subjects used early photographs to convey particular meaning to viewers. The exhibit uses photographs from History Nebraska's photo collection.
