Do you know him? Museum in Frankfurt wants to identify Native in headdress in museum poster
In an exhibit that will open at the Weltkulturen Museum in the city of Frankfurt, is a photo of an unidentified Native man wearing a plains-style headdress. The museum is looking for any identification of the man so they can list his name alongside the poster.
The exhibit is titled: PLAKATIERT! Reflexionen des indigenen Nordamerika or roughly translated: Posted! Reflections of Indigenous North America.
The exhibit contains posters of Native Americans in the 1970s mentioned in health, art, education, and religion and was compiled students at Goethe University.
On the exhibit Facebook page, curators have posted the following announcement:
Does anybody know who this is?
We are looking for his name.
All we know is that he must be Lakota.
He is shown on a poster from our forthcoming exhibition "Plakatiert! Reflexionen des indigenen Nordamerika" /"Posted! Reflections of Native North America" and it would be great to give him a name.
