This is Still the Place: Utah's 1897 Pioneer Jubilee


Members of the Bannock and Shoshone tribes demonstrated the Ghost Dance and War Dance throughout the Jubilee. Here they parade with an advertisement down Main Street. By the time of the Jubilee, with help from Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, Native Americans had been transformed into spectacles or "monster attractions" only four years after the confrontation at Wounded Knee in South Dakota.
