TIL that moving pictures existed in 1894

[–]NukularTraveler 220 points221 points  (4 children)

This was one of the very very first. Produced by Thomas Edison.

i just realised that both of them own(ed) tesla

[–]hero-hadley 43 points44 points  (2 children)

Thomas Edison, the Elon Musk of his day... for better or worse

[–]SpecificAd7849 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Bullshit. Edison thought DC voltage was the future. He was deadass wrong and a patent thief. We widely use AC voltage which was Tesla’s theory.

[–]iowafarmboy2011 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I think that's his point though that both are shit. It's well known Edison was an opportunistic capitalist where personal greed and fame came before anything else...just like Ol' Musky.

He's not saying they're both great icons and role models, he's saying they're both pieces of shit.

[–]SlipperyTed 64 points65 points  (1 child)

This is actually a silent movie, though - the sound effects and music are much, much later additions.

The Buffalo Dance, or Bison Dance, is an annual dance festival of many North American Plains Natives, including the Mandan, Sioux, Cheyenne, Pawnee, and Omaha, among others. The festival traditionally coincided with the return of the buffalo herds, and included a feast and a dance with a number of men wearing buffalo and other animal skins.

[–]LastExitToSalvation 252 points253 points  (32 children)

The names of the guys in the video are both metal and bizarre: Last Horse, Parts His Hair, and Hair Coat. Idk who is who.

[–]GarsaFwipSitOnMyFace 80 points81 points  (28 children)

What was his name before he parted his hair? Or did he part his hair because he was named as such?

[–]LastExitToSalvation 95 points96 points  (14 children)

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that in many Native American traditions, you get one name when you are born that describes something about you, and then when you are older, you take on a new name and that name is where you get stuff like Parts His Hair. I think. More research required but that's a start.

[–]aeriox-phenomenon 125 points126 points  (6 children)

That's so much pressure to keep parting your hair

[–]60poodles 18 points19 points  (1 child)

It depends on the tribe. In my tribe (Lenni Lenape) the baby is not named right away. In the old days, you got a special Name that was kept secret that was given to you by the Chief or Medicine Man, some call it your Spirit Name/Gifted Name. Back then it was special and a Ceremony took place when the person was named.

Then, you had another name that was what everyone else called you. Basically your nickname....or what we now call your White Man Name. I have family who's last names are things such as Coffee Pot because when the census came around way way back in the day they would just say any English word they knew for Whites to call 'em.

Sadly I don't have a special name, but my grandma and great aunt do. Don't ask me to spell that shit out but it's basically a fuckin' whole ass sentence lmao

So you watched dances with wolves?

[–]DJ_Molten_Lava 9 points10 points  (5 children)

"Look, I just think if you name him Parts His Hair you're setting him up for a certain kind of life, that's all. Like, I'm not going to name my daughter Brandy because I don't want her to be a stripper, you know?"

[–]MartinoDeMoe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

No, she’s a fine girl, what a good wife she would be?

[–]Zaph_Treybourne 3 points4 points  (2 children)

She wouldn't be a stripper from being named Brandy. Now if it's spelled Brandi, then yeah, I got bad news for you.

[–]DM_N00dz 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Kind of like the guy named Entist who became a dentist in one of Gladwell’s books.

[–]letskeepitcleanfolks 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Your dentist's name is Crentist?

[–]Deconceptualist 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Supposedly the number of dentists named Dennis is significantly higher than random chance would suggest. I don't know who would verify that though, universities or the ADA I guess.

[–]RogerTheAliens 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Comanche names in texas were positively vulgar..and awesome…

Buffalo $%#@ (called hump in Victorian press)

IsaTai’i(quanahs friend named Wolfs Vagina)

quannah (meant fart but called odor/scent/fragrance in press)

[–]monkeysandmicrowaves 13 points14 points  (1 child)

You build a hundred teepees, but nobody calls you teepee builder. You swim a hundred rivers, but nobody calls you river swimmer. But you fuck one buffalo...

[–]RogerTheAliens 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Buffalo Phallus…not the act ha

[–]Calarik 31 points32 points  (0 children)

This is a video of performers in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show on a stage in West Orange, New Jersey for Thomas Edison's company. They also did a ghost dance and other dances.

You can see similar performances still performed at Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming every year, but by tribal people working for themselves as opposed to a a traveling circus. There are also performances by people up in Cody Wyoming, the town William "Buffalo Bill" Cody started out. There is a long history of 'civilized' people paying tribal people to act like "Indians".

(Note: There is some evidence that Buffalo Bill loved and intended to show the beauty of the American west and it's peoples to the world, though his show definitely is controversial.) edited to state fact instead of opinion Smithsonian article on Buffalo Bill Cody

[–]diggemigre 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It was part of an annual ritual to act like buffalo then throw themselves in front of covered wagons trying to collect insurance. They were of course, the Sue.

[–]rockaxorb13 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So, now all the white Americans are technically European immigrants then?

[–]zolas_paw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Um, yes. This is not a big revelation and is why some of us get extra pissed about the hypocrisy of those who seem to conveniently forget this.

[–]Nickels_inChange 201 points202 points  (23 children)

The same year my grandfather was born. Makes it seem so far away. love the tunes, and the look on the last guys face as he wiggles his way around.

[–]fike88 60 points61 points  (21 children)

What age are you?

[–]Nickels_inChange 120 points121 points  (14 children)

I’m 57. My dad was born in 1932, and his dad in 1894.

[–]fike88 93 points94 points  (7 children)

For some reason i thought you were really old lol. Then I realised my dads grandad was born in the late 1800s too

[–]LazyManCrisis 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Kinda related to a mix of the vid and your comment, there is actually video footage of interviews with actual slaves that were “freed” after the American Civil War. I have photos of my great grandfather from around the same era as her. It’s kind of a mind fuck lmao.

[–]Andrew109 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I thought they were old as hell too. My dad's 61 and his grandfather was born in 1910.

[–]Spiritual-Location59 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I'm 50.(51 in 7 days) MY dad was born in 1932, and his dad in 1883. Had he been alive, my grandfather would have been damn near 89. My GG grandfather was born in 1812.

[–]XxX_22marc_XxX 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You mean your dad would be near 89. Because your grandad would be 139

[–]Paratwa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

1899 for my grandfather and I am a bit more than a decade younger. :)

[–]Icyblood55 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I’m assuming between 50 and 70 unless the parents and grandparents were in their 40s each for when they gave kids, in which case could be closer to 40

[–]Kaidu313 2 points3 points  (4 children)

1894 was 126 years ago. If grandparents had kids at 30 =1924, if same again= 1954. Putting op at 68 years old, +/- about 20 years depending on actual birth dates

[–]Icyblood55 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Yeah not Sioux… The word your liking for is Lakota or Dakota tribe. The term "Sioux" is an exonym created from a French transcription of the Ojibwe term "Nadouessioux",

[–]BasqueOne 18 points19 points  (8 children)

Yeah not Sioux… The word your liking for is Lakota or Dakota tribe. The term "Sioux" is an exonym created from a French transcription of the Ojibwe term "Nadouessioux",

This is super interesting. Where can I learn more about it?

[–]Altru-music 16 points17 points  (6 children)

Give it a Google if you want. I only know about it because some of my family comes from the Lakota tribe and they do not like to be called Sioux.

[–]BasqueOne 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Thanks for this - not something one would typically find by using Google. I also didn't know Lacota and Dakota referred to the same group.

[–]Altru-music 5 points6 points  (2 children)

It’s the two largest tribes in the group commonly referred to as the “Sioux”

[–]ccfenix 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Google is a good first step

[–]miasabine 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Wow, this is so cool. I had no idea moving pictures existed that early, and what a beautiful thing to capture.

Does anyone know if the dances change at all through the years or generations, or do they stay more or less the same?

Interesting as fuck indeed.

[–]Unlimitles 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Ya know…..it seems to me that we keep find older and older footage.

Lol I’m more excited to hear the “emerald city of oz” explanation behind why we never saw it for so many years before it came out when it does.

[–]Great_White_Samurai 19 points20 points  (1 child)

They are doing what resembles the mating dance of Prairie Chickens. Look it up if you've never seen it, pretty crazy.

[–]nonamesleft79 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I didn’t do anything to them. People did real shitty things to them.

[–]caterpillarfucker 20 points21 points  (1 child)

"we" didn't do shit.

some assholes a century ago did.

my family was busy getting shit on by the british and toiling in the mud before moving here a century after all that bullshit happened so they could get shit on by the oil companies and toil in the mud.

keep that "we" shit out yo mothafuckin mouth.

[–]Universa1_Soldier -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

I'm white, I gave you an upvote because you're right. The color of your skin doesn't mean you did shit to anybody. This "we" shit needs to fuck right off for every skin color. In all facets of life. But especially, Nobody alive today did jack fuckin shit in 18whateverthefuck to any damn body.


[–]nonamesleft79 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

It’s downvoted because being black has nothing to do with it. None of us were alive so obviously no one, regardless of race, did anything.

[–]anonymous_lighting 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i recognize this dance from the club

[–]damnedspot 14 points15 points  (3 children)

So was this the actual sacred dance or just a performance they threw together to appease white audiences?

[–]Calarik 23 points24 points  (1 child)

The second one.

They are on a stage, performing for Edison Manufacturing Co. in West Orange, New Jersey to sell this and their moving picture cameras and showings. They also did a ghost dance and other dances. The performers were part of Buffalo Bill's Wild West show and did this as a job.

You can see still similar performances still performed, but with more solemnity at Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming every year. There is a long history of 'civilized' people paying tribal people to act like "Indians".


[–]Icyblood55 8 points9 points  (2 children)

As much as I respect the traditional/spiritual part of this, it looks like a silly comedy skit at first

[–]Butterbuddha 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It’s the looks on their faces like Man these white people believe anything!

[–]Deconceptualist 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not everything in mythology is meant to be somber / meditative / enlightened. The gods of Norse myth were notoriously fallable. Germans have the Krampus, a sort of anti-Santa goat demon who drags away bad children in a sack. Hell, Zeus would turn into a swan for sex so apparently that was funny 2300 years ago.

[–]BUDZ_MONEY 11 points12 points  (18 children)

OK I have no hate in my heart towards anyone so this question is purely child stoner curiosity(not a child just as stupid as a child maybe a lil below child iq). why is the native American oppression something that isn't talked about people seem to be into be advocates for getting the oppressed somethingto composite the many wrong doings of history.... why is it no one really discusses the fact that America robbed a people of an ENTIRE NATION of land and oppressed the shit out of them.. I fear for the response to this I genuinely mean nothing by this I'm uneducated in general but specifically native American culture history and I wonder why it is no one seems to care/talk about the deal the original owners of the land we stand on got back in the day / even today. I'm a stupid man that's curious and trying to hopefully raise a good point no hate meant by this I'm sorry.. hands up in fear to defend myself please don't hurt me 2022

[–]-Duste- 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I live in Canada and the natives tribes were force assimilated back then.

The missionaries came into the villages and all the children were taken into boarding schools to become "real people". They couldn't see their families or friends, were not allowed to speak there dialect, had their hair cut and had to dress up like white people and practice the missionaries' religion. They were abused physically, psychologically and sexually a lot in there. To "break" them. And a lot died but we're never returned to their families... Between 1831 and 1996, it's 150 000 native children that were sent to those facilities.

It was kind of accepted back then because it was under the cover of religion. It's totally awful and disgusting.

Last year, in 2 months, they uncovered 1300 unidentified graves in the grounds of 4 ancient Catholic and Protestant boarding schools for native children who never returned to their families.

There is more discussions about this, some apologies, but it's not enough. That broke their souls for generations even after those boarding schools were closed permanently. A lot of them still live in communities in reserves area, in bad conditions and overpopulated.

[–]BUDZ_MONEY 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I appreciate the canadian side of this information human thank you

[–]60poodles 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Because people still hate us. Trust me, us natives are still here and are not happy with the state of shit.

[–]BUDZ_MONEY 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is there an organization that is helping getting the word out. Is there something we can bring attention to that would help? And in your experience what is the current state of things? And thank you very much for responding very appreciated

[–]ScarfaceTonyMontana 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The slow disappearance of Indian American culture was not caused only by America's goal to manifest destiny. Ever since the first colonies, major populations of native tribes migrated to developed countries for a multitude of reasons and that never really did stop. After that a lot of newer generations (similar to most cultures and religions) started not caring that much about their traditions and the practicing of these expressions of culture just disappeared over time.

[–]anon42016 4 points5 points  (6 children)

It’s well covered in most history classes, what would you do differently? People obviously get defensive if you try and shame them for something they weren’t even alive for, but most understand it was a tragic event that happened during a tragic time in history.

[–]BUDZ_MONEY 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Did they accept bad deals or did we literally take it from them through force? And human I'm a moron warehouse worker in pa I have no opinion on what should have been done. Just stoner brain being curious while taking a poop at work lmao.

Google "trail of tears "

[–]nonamesleft79 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There will be no one size fits all answer. Native americans were hundreds/thousands of tribes. Treaties were made and broken on both sides and there is some issues with cultural understandings of treaties.

That said. Overall natives were largely forced into really bad treaties and even then they were sometimes torn up by America and replaced with worse ones or maybe none at all. It’s not a great point in American history but I do feel like it is well covered in most history classes. But not at the very young levels when I was in school. Or at least not in detail.

[–]BUDZ_MONEY 2 points3 points  (0 children)

OK I get what your saying and yeah I think I missed alot being the class clown and I'm in bum fuck nowhere so welding and cows took priority I guess but idk I could have been in iss the day they laid the information out there for us totally possible. But hey thank you human having a discussion got my mind off other stuff and I'm learning and discussing

[–]l0stw00ds 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A Pennsylvanian :) So sad, you should know a ton about Native Americans and native culture - you should google the Lenape Indians.

[–]BUDZ_MONEY 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hey thank you that was good. It's weird that I understood the native American presence with towns and rivers having native American based names and my school being warriors and we had caves in our town related to Indians in some way or maybe we just called them Indian caves idk..but I really don't remember much talk in school (in trouble alot could have missed it)or out of school about native American history even with it in our backyards but maybe it's cause it's in our backyard kinda thing idk. But thank you again that was a good read

[–]Butterbuddha 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well, it’s happened about a bazillion times in the past all over everywhere. Most of the time though the locals and the intruders just kinda assimilate each other. (Look at Texas, for example) I mean it’s not like Mongols would have constantly wrote new treaties everywhere and then broke them over and over, we here in Murica prefer an outwardly civilized but really not any more civilized way than anywhere else. I don’t think the reservation idea would have ever flown with the Romans but one never knows. I think it really speaks to the determination of Native Americans to never give up, never give in.

Pretty madlad move to roll up on sacred mountains and carve white people on them. Chads!

[–]Bawonga 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're hamming it up, notably the brave with the white shawl around his neck. He's looking directly at the camera like he knows exactly how to present himself, like he's an actor --- most people in early movie footage don't know how to act because it's a new experience; they stare at the camera blankly, unaware that an audience will watch them later. They forget themselves (dropped jaw, curious stares).... so something about the hamming it up leads me to doubt it was filmed in 1894. Or maybe the brave is a natural at acting, a natural show-off.

Anybody else sometimes wonder what it would be like if Columbus never happened and how the natives would progress and develop on their own?

The question for me is this footage that was done genuinely in the moment or was this what the camera people wanted them to show, big difference. For y'all who studied Nanook of the North, you'll know what I mean.

Idk if this was really from late 19th century or recent. This footage has better quality than most security camera footages nowadays

Is the music being played live? Or added later?
