1893 Chicago Worlds Fair

The front of the Lapland village. The Lapland colony was brought to Chicago by Emil Arner. Who is Neil Bull below then? Was one the producer and one the "caretaker?"

The interior of the Lapland village at the 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair. The Laplanders' summer and winter houses are seen--the tents of coarse cloth, and the huts of boards covered heavily with sod.

Neil Bull and his Lapland (Sami People) family in front of their dwelling, located on the grounds of the Midway Plaisance at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.

With apologies to Marko Kristen
Marco Kristens Circus Williams and the Hagenbecks. I wish I had studied "my" history a little better before I got into a debate with Marko on "National Ethic's."
