By the turn of the 19th century, many Indians despaired of the future. Some firmly believed in the inevitability of progress, a theme highlighted at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, attended by G. W. Grayson. The Exposition suggested that darker-skinned peoples would survive only as servants, if at all, while whites would inherit the modern world. This widespread belief led Native Americans such as G. W. Grayson to distance themselves further from black Indians, who seemed condemned to the past.
