The Red Man (Vol. 6, No. 1)

September 1913

This issue of The Red Man begins with a story, written by George P. Donehoo, about Mary Jemison who was captured by Indians in 1755, but refused to return and chose to stay with them. The next article was a piece by Dana H. Kelsey, advising Indians to sell their excess land to farmer, rather than keeping them under lease. Dr. Frank G. Speck, author of the next article discussed the need to preserve game, as certain animals are necessary for the livelihood of different Indian nations. Next, Edna Dean Proctor wrote a poem about Sacagawea, the Indian girl who guided Lewis and Clark on their expedition. In the legends, stories, and customs section Domitilla wrote about the Eskimo legend of the man in the moon, and Dora Elm of the Oneida, wrote about her nation’s creation story of the earth. Lastly, in the editorial comment section Indian affairs under the Wilson administration and an Indian architect were discussed.
