The Ghost Dance, or “Messiah Craze” as the press called it, fused Native American religion and Christianity to express ideas about the resurrection and rejuvenation of indigenous cultures. A manifestation of Native American pride and empowerment in the final years of the 1880s, these ceremonies drew the attention of ethnographers and aroused the suspicions of United States government and military officials. After the murders of Big Foot and Sitting Bull and the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890, the Ghost Dance became part of the legend of the vanishing Indian. In Ralph Blakelock’s murky, deliberately ambiguous composition, the dancing figures appear as ghosts or shadows— insubstantial fragments of a memory or a dream.
