Angel De Cora Dietz or Hinook-Mahiwi-Kalinaka (Fleecy Cloud Floating in Place) (1871–1919) was a Winnebago painter, illustrator, Native American rights advocate, and teacher at Carlisle Indian School. She was the best known Native American artist before World War I.
Hinook existed in a position of influence since “among most plains people, power and cultural knowledge were accumulated by and dispensed through females”. Although Hinook’s mother was French in origin, Hinook would be expected to follow in her grandmothers footsteps in passing along cultural traditions.
De Cora created the title-page designs for Natalie Curtis's The Indians' Book, a collection of Native American songs, stories, and artwork first published in 1907.
Unfortunately not much of De Cora's original paintings remain, but she illustrated her own stories published in Harper's Magazine and illustrated books. The 1911 Yellow Star: A Story of East West, by Elaine Goodale Eastman features illustrations by De Cora and her husband, William Henry Dietz. Her illustrations are rare for her time period because she portrayed Native Americans wearing contemporary clothing. https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/5e27d8572e6a7e5c6791e621bf695e7e/5BD144F8/t51.2885-15/e35/36701747_210304292962370_626457732156751872_n.jpg2018-07-18

We see this a lot in historical accounts, especially with film adaptations. It's not only B.S. that the truth can be manipulated, it's that people won't question it when it's right in front of them. .
