A land lull oi buttan and free oi white men was the hope at the ghost dancers, the dream ot the American Indian. A small exhibition at the Hunterian Museum captures a glimmer of that dream in the eyes of some, but for the chiets shorn ottheir braids, it has already gone. Feather and beads have been substituted for uncomfortable suits and restricting collars. ‘Omaha Images' records in iading sepia photographs, the Indian Congress at 1898, attempting to preserve the beauty and strength ot a civilisation which by then was almost completely destroyed. All it otters is a shadow, a tlnylragment otVictorian nostalgia, a sad reminder of the devastation and cruelty oi progress. (Alice Bain)
