Entertainments

Various entertainment activities conducted by Native Americans

Marleah & Kanistanaux

Today I have a very exciting news clipping to share with to my readers. I have finally located some Kanistanaux family members prior to the 1870 Census.
This just goes to show that patience, persistence, and constantly revisiting sites I have already searched eventually pays off. It only took me 2 years and a new newspaper search engine to find this!

Indians in Paris – Index

This post contains all the links to the various posts I have written concerning Native American People participating in the 1867 Universal Exposition held in Paris, France.

Readers of this series might also be interested in learning more about U-ta-wa-un and the two Native American women known to have traveled with him.

U-ta-wa-un
Marleah Kanistanaux (I believe she played the part of We-no-na)
Lee-o-netto

1867 American Circus – Dress Rehearsal

Today’s post has nothing to do with genealogy, but the illustrations were uncovered as part of my Indians in Paris research.
I decided these circus illustrations are historically important and should be available to the public. Since this blog is public what better place to offer them. I hope my readers enjoy this short side trip.

U-ta-wa-un – Illustrated

Well, this may be the last of the Indians in Paris series, but then again it may not. Let’s see what the future brings.
Today I am sharing a number of cartoons found in the New York and Paris media in 1867 which may be directed at my good friend U-ta-wa-un. The humor of the times is often foreign to me. I don’t understand everything, but perhaps some of my readers will. In any case, it is interesting to find these items and fun to share them.

U-ta-wa-un – Photo from Paris

Today I am sharing a most wonderful gift provided to Ne-Do-Ba by a secret admirer. This person contacted me after doing an internet search on the name U-ta-wa-un. He offered to provide me with a copy of a pair of photos from a larger collection of “Indian” photos and told me I could do with them as I pleased.
I was just blown away when the copies of the photos arrived in my e-mail box. I think my readers will enjoy them as much as I do. The second photo will appear in my next post.

Indians in Paris (part 5)

Today’s post is nearly the last (until I learn something new ;-) in a short series providing data for the American Indian presence in Paris, France in the year 1867. There will be at least two more posts containing a wonderful surprise.
Today’s post will cover everything (well, most of the good stuff anyway) I found in Paris concerning the presence of Native Americans in Paris in 1867.
I found books, images, news clippings, and scholarly works online and free. This is just a sample of the better resources available. I am amazed at the number of online resources I have located. Ten years ago this same research would have been impossible for me to accomplish. The time and cost involved in travel, communication, and copying materials the old fashion way can quickly become prohibitive. In the current age, I sit in the comfort of my home with the world at my fingertips – literally. For historians (especially those with disabilities or limited finances), this is certainly the best of times.

Indians in Paris (part 4)

Well, my vacation has lasted long enough. It is time to get back to business. Since I am waiting on the arrival of deeds from Chautauqua County, New York, I decided to finish up my Indians in Paris mini-series.
It has been many months since I last wrote on this subject so readers may want to review the earlier articles.

 

I have already shown my old friend U-ta-wa-un and his female companion are involved in the 1867 Paris Universal Exposition. Today I will cover the information I found involving their travel to Europe.

The Historical Newell Family

Today I will take a break from my Kanistanaux project to post this brief case study of the Newell Family. I recently received inquires from two different directions about the family and a new item to work with. I thought this would be a good time to take a fresh look at the family.
I would like to thank my good friend Salmon for locating Item 1 and bringing it to my attention.

Indians in Paris (part 3)

Today’s post is the next in a short series providing background for the American Indian presence at the Paris Expo of 1867.
Today I will cover what the New York Times claimed was being done to outfit a Native American exhibit as requested by the Commissioner in Paris.
