Buffalo Bill's Wild West and the Progressive Image of American Indians is a collaborative project of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Department of History with generous assistance from the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. The digital history project seeks to make a digital scholarly argument supported with an electronic archive that contains letters, official programs, newspaper reports, posters, and photographs. The project highlights the social and cultural forces at work at a particular moment that shaped how American Indians were defined, debated, contested, and controlled. This project emerged out of the Papers of William F. Cody project of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
Special thanks for gracious assistance in planning, technical assistance, and serving as sounding boards go to Linda Clark at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Keith Nickum, Karin Dalziel, and Brian Pytlik–Zillig at the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, and Dr. Doug Seefeldt and Brent Rogers in the Department of History at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
