US Indian Stamps

Clair Aubrey Huston - US Postage 14 cents Indian Stamp (1923)If you're wondering what to do with yourself over the festive season while Wallace and Gromit aren't on TV, you could visit a new online art gallery jointly created by the National Museum of the American Indian and the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. The American Indian in Stamps: Profiles in Leadership, Accomplishment and Cultural Celebration displays 40 US postal stamps featuring Native Americans, issued since 1875. The 1923 stamp shown here was designed by Clair Aubrey Huston (CLICK). The gallery runs as an Adobe Flash Player routine which didn't crash my PC.
