00041 Harold W. Case
Includes individual and group portraits of many missionized Indian families, the developing churches that composed the mission, construction of Four Bears Bridge, mission schools and activities, traditional Indian camps, agriculture, funerals, and places on the Fort Berthold Reservation. One part of the collection consists of photographs taken by the Charles Hall family, and later the Harold Case family of the Congregational mission started on the reservation beginning in 1876. The reservation was the home of the Three Affiliated Tribes: the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara. The mission began with the establishment of a church and school, and later the Nuita Mission was added. Harold Case sought to stop construction of the Garrison Dam in order to preserve the six Indian communities that had developed over the years, but failed. The outcome was the splitting up of the people on the reservation as well as the destruction of most of their livelihood, based on farming the rich bottomlands. (6221 photographs)
