Human Zoo: The Igorots
From 1904 to 1911, Dreamland was a famous and ambitious amusement park in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City.
Opened on May 15, 1904, this 15-acre lot was a park featured relatively high-class entertainment and dramatic spectacles based on morality themes, elegant architecture, pristine white towers, and some educational exhibits along with the rides and thrills.
By 1909, a group of Igorot tribe, garbed with only a few folds of vibrant-colored cloth, completed the park and featured as "human display". The park was destroyed by fire in 1911.
