Lakota Performers in Europe: Their Culture and the Artifacts They Left Behind (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Lakota Performers in Europe: Their Culture and the Artifacts They Left Behind
Author: Francois Chladiuk
Author: Steve Friesen
Author: Walter Littlemoon
Abstract: From April to November 1935 in Belgium, fifteen Lakotas enacted their culture on a world stage. Wearing beaded moccasins and eagle-feather headdresses, they set up tepees, danced, and demonstrated marksmanship and horse taming for the twenty million visitors to the Brussels International Exposition, a grand event similar to a world’s fair. The performers then turned homeward, leaving behind 157 pieces of Lakota culture that they had used in the exposition, ranging from costumery to weaponry. In Lakota Performers in Europe, author Steve Friesen tells the story of these artifacts, forgotten until recently, and of the Lakota performers who used them.

Pioneers of Promotion: How Press Agents for Buffalo Bill, P.T. Barnum, and the World's Columbian Exposition Created Modern Marketing (Book)
Title: Pioneers of Promotion: How Press Agents for Buffalo Bill, P.T. Barnum, and the World's Columbian Exposition Created Modern Marketing
Author: Joe Dobrow
Abstract: In Pioneers of Promotion, writer Joe Dobrow introduces us to the “Mad Men” of the 19th Century. Dobrow turns back the clock to the Gilded Age, when the railroad was just opening up the West, Buffalo Bill was better known than the President of the United States, P.T. Barnum was so famous for his promotions that people commonly spoke of them as “Barnumisms,” a country of 67 million people could host a World’s Fair that attracted 27 million visitors, and the development of a consumer culture paved the way for branded products that quickly became household names. Without a playbook, without any broadcast technology to reach the masses, without any efficient means for disseminating information and images, this little-known group of men somehow developed the marketing techniques we still employ today.

Title: The Popular Frontier: Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Transnational Mass Culture
Title: The Popular Frontier: Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Transnational Mass Culture
Editor: Frank Christianson
Editor: Frank Christianson
Abstract: When William F. Cody introduced his Wild West exhibition to European audiences in 1887, the show soared to new heights of popularity and success. With its colorful portrayal of cowboys, Indians, and the taming of the North American frontier, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West popularized a myth of American national identity and shaped European perceptions of the United States. The Popular Frontier is the first collection of essays to explore the transnational impact and mass-cultural appeal of Cody’s Wild West.
