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.
