Indigenous Selk'nam Indians, Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Chile Featured Print

Indigenous Selk'nam Indians, Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Chile

Indigenous Selk'nam Indian Woman of Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Magallanes and Antartica Chilena, Chile - toward the southernmost point on the South American mainland, pictured with her laden horse. The nomadic Selk'nam, also known as the Onawo or Ona people, were an indigenous people in the Patagonian region of southern Argentina and Chile, including the Tierra del Fuego islands. They were one of the last aboriginal groups in South America to be encountered by ethnic Europeans or Westerners in the late 19th century. In the late 19th century and early 20th century (interestingly the exact date of this card), estancieros and gold prospectors launched a campaign of extermination against the indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego, including the almost complete genocide of the Selk, nam, now termed the Selk, nam Genocide. Date: circa 1901

Participants in female circumcision ceremony, Africa Featured Print

Participants in female circumcision ceremony, Africa

Participants in a female circumcision ceremony line up in Ubangi-Shari (Oubangi Chari), a French colony in central Africa, now part of the Central African Republic. Female circumcision (now often termed female genital mutilation) which is the partial or total cutting away of the external female genitalia, has been practised for centuries in parts of Africa, generally as an element of a rite of passage preparing young girls for womanhood and marriage. The procedure is often performed without anaesthetic by lay practitioners with little or no knowledge of medicine or anatomy and can cause death or permanent health problems, and severe pain. The adolescents in this photograph wear beaded veils to cover their faces. The image is by Casimir Zagourski, a pioneering photographer of Central African people and customs, who settled in Leopoldville in the Belgian Congo (now Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) in 1924. His postcard series L'Afrique qui disparait! (Disappearing Africa), of which this card is one, gained him renown. Date: C.1929
