Indian Attack near Russell, Kansas

Gogolin, Jakob

Adolph Roenigk, of Lincoln, Kansas, commissioned Jakob Gogolin to complete this painting in 1930. Roenigk wanted to reproduce the image for a book he was writing entitled, "Pioneer History of Kansas." This painting, along with two others, documents a Cheyenne Indian attack experienced by Roenigk while he was working for the Union Pacific Railroad near Russell, Kansas. Gogolin was a German-born artist living in Denver, Colorado. The set is believed to have originally consisted of six paintings.

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company band member

These two photographs show a drum major from the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company's inter-tribal band. The group organized in 1923 when three Native American musicians performed during a company picnic at the Santa Fe Railroad shops in Winslow, Arizona. Later referred to as the "Santa Fe All Indian Band". Members consisted primarily of employees from the Santa Fe Railroad and representatives from as many as twelve Native American tribes. The band performed at a number of functions across the country including President Dwight Eisenhower's inaugural parade. In 1964, the band disbanded due to the lack of members.
