Photos of the Old West: Rufus Buck Gang
You never want to be around these infamous outlaw teens. They committed the grimmest crimes in the Indian Territory. Though they got innocent looks, Rufus Buck Gang killed innocents, abused and ravaged women and kids, and, worst, they often did their crimes while the family members of the victims were forced to watch.

After a Long Walk, Navajo Tribe, Spotted Elk
Surprisingly, when the wagons started moving to the west, they brought along the settlers, who began expanding westward. The native tribes such as the Navajo tribe were forced to walk away from their ancestral land. This photo captured the trauma of the Navajo leaders during the ”Long walk of Navajo.” Soon, some Natives like the Lakota took weapons, and this led to a confrontation with the federal government. This became known as the “Wounded Knee Massacre,” It was a massive massacre where 250 Lakota men, women, and children were killed, including the Lakota Sioux Chief “Spotted Elk.”
Life in the Old West was pretty tough for the settlers and natives, many experienced hardships. But to think of it, both were victims of many diseases, hunger, lawlessness, and selfish ways. But despite all that, they found ways to deal with their hard life. Their Cowboy dance brought people together, relieving fatigue from their hard days at work. The best thing about it, is as it is free and it’s fun.
