Indians will be a Feature

Boston Herald

The Pan-American Exposition would scarcely be worthy of its name did it neglect to illustrate so important a subject as the aboriginal inhabitants of the new world, their customs, institutions, and daily life. The great Exposition to be held at Buffalo next summer will, therefore, give especial attention to this subject and aim to present it on a more extensive, and popular scale than has ever been attempted before.

Object lessons in the life, customs, and history of the aborigines of the various portions of the continent will be given chiefly in four departments of the Exposition, in the exhibits of the building devoted to ethnology and archæology, in the Indian congress on the midway, in the Six Nations village, and by means of the mounds intended to reproduce some of the best known and most typical of the works of the mound builders of North America.
