Yosemite National Park and Mariposa Big Trees -- October 10, 2014

This ad appeared in the Los Angeles Herald 100 years ago today, on 10-October-1914.  The Southern Pacific offered special excursions at reduced rates "account Indian Fandango and Festival."  It says the Piute (Paiute) and Digger (a derogatory term for certain bands of Paiute) will put on a "spectacular war dance" and there would be an "Exhibition of basket and bead work..."
