In Their Own Words: Native Americans in World War I

We invite you to read stories and commentary written by North American Indians who served in the military during the First World War, and look at photos of these and other soldiers who returned to the US after the war.

These words and pictures are part of the Wanamaker Collection, a unique collection of images and documents dating from the early 20th century.

After a very brief summary of United States involvement in the war, we will explore how the documents and photographs in the Wanamaker Collection provide perspectives on Native American participation.
