The collections of the Ethnologisches Museum in Berlin house around sixty objects from the Omaha of North America that were assembled by the indigenous ethnologist Francis La Flesche around 1895 on behalf of the Königliches Museum für Völkerkunde. It was a time of upheaval, when the lives of the Omaha were marked by loss of land, racism, and violence. The effects can still be felt today. This book offers insight into the life and work of La Flesche and the process of organizing the exhibition „Against the Current“. The catalogue of objects written by Francis La Flesche is being published here for the first time.
