With more than 80 images and objects that detail life on the Isleta Pueblo Reservation, this exhibition reveals the rapid changes experienced by the Native American people of the American Southwest after the arrival of railroads in 1881. Railroad companies forcibly acquired lands in the center of Isleta Pueblo in the Rio Grande Valley and consequently brought scores of tourists and other visitors. Included are images by photographers Edward Curtis, A.C. Vroman, Karl Moon, John Hillers, Charles Lummis, Carlos Vierra, Sumner Matteson, Albert Sweeney, Josef Imhof, and Ben Wittick.
