Diversity in the West

May 20, 2017 - Aug 27, 2017

Buffalo Bill, through his show and other activities, has made an indelible imprint upon American history and culture. While Buffalo Bill's Wild West was based upon Cody's own experiences growing up in the American West, he advocated for Native American and Women's equal rights and both were featured prominently in the Wild West. The show eventually turned into an international affair, employing performers from every continent (except Antarctica).
