JULY 21, 2018 – JANUARY 20, 2019

In the 19th century, an Indian Agent named Joseph Street, fought for government resources pledged to the Native American tribes. Despite many disagreements with  other politicians and individuals in power, he maintained his position as Indian Agent for over ten years. Government officials recognized his efforts and many Native Americans respected Street. Some even considered him a friend. Street’s passionate and distinguished career is uncovered through documents on display from the Byron Reed Collection.
