"The couple in full regalia are the homecoming royalty at Haskell Indian School from 1949--from a photo taken by my mother. They're overlaid atop two maps of Kansas, which is where Haskell (now Indian Nations University) is located. I found the title of the removal period map particularly ironic and chilling: 'Emigrant Indians,' suggesting the people involved had a choice in the 'emigration.'"
