Series 8: Slide Narratives by J. W. "Duke" Wellington and Photographs

As a superintendent, Wellington was able to witness several American Indian ceremonies and activities. Series 8 contains photographs of various celebrations at the Rocky Boy and Fort Belknap reservations including the Fool Dance, Sun Dance, and the opening of the Feathered Pipe Bundle. Wellington originally donated several slide sets of these ceremonies along with narratives to Special Collections. He wanted a copy made for himself as well as the Smithsonian. However, he was unhappy with the lack of display facilities and the appraisal price for the slides and therefore asked that all slide sets be returned to him, which the library staff did. What remains in the collection are the typed narratives Wellington wrote, intended to accompany the slide sets which are found in folders 14-22 of box 17. Wellington also wrote narratives on some of the non-ceremony photographs and are found in folder 23 in box 17. Folders that contain photographs with these narratives have been marked with a double asterisk (**). Also included in the photographs are pictures of Wellington and his father's ranch in Harlotown. Photographs of tribal herds, members of tribal councils, and American Indians are in series 8 as well. Several photographs of the 1952 flood at Fort Belknap, road damage at Rocky Boy and several accidental deaths at both reservations are also included in the series. In addition, the series contains three D. F. Barry prints. Paintings and drawing by American Indian artists George Shields of the Fort Belknap reservation and Andrew Standing Soldier, a Pine Ridge Sioux from North Dakota are also included.
