The popular “End of the Trail” sculpture by James Earle Fraser was first shown at San Francisco’s 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition and reflected Native American cultures as a “conquered and vanishing race” while
purporting to reverently memorialize “the noble Indian.” Since its original presentation this 18’ plaster statue was immediately acclaimed by Euro-American society as a masterpiece and symbol of the American West. Over the past century, “The End of the Trail” has become one of the most widely reproduced images in American Art history. However, since Fraser’s sculpture was unveiled, Native America has had a different interpretation of what “The End of the Trail” represents.
