Photographer Helen Post is best known for her images of Indigenous Americans of the Southwest—Jicarilla Apache, Diné (Navajo), Hopi, and others—during her travels in the 1940s. The Helen Post Papers cover the years 1938 to 1975 but are primarily from the 1940s. The collection consists of:

  • Native American materials: includes documentation of Indigenous customs and rituals, sizes and locations of reservations, and the health conditions of those living on the reservations, four short stories by Eugene Wounded Horse and typed manuscripts for Brave-Against-the-Enemy
  • Professional materials: commissions for portraiture and advertising that are documented through negatives and prints
