The World's Columbian Exposition, was a world's fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. The iconic centerpiece of the Fair, the large water pool, represented the long voyage Columbus took to the New World. The Exposition was an influential social and cultural event and had a profound effect on architecture, sanitation, the arts, Chicago's self-image, and American industrial optimism.

These portraits are valuable records that document Native American dress and customs at the end of the nineteenth century during an active period of Indian removal and hostilities against Native Americans.Library of Congress holds one of the most important collections of Native American photographic portraits.
