The R. Bliss Company of New York copyrighted "The Game of Minnehaha" in 1891. A race game featuring Native American symbols, the game is based on the female protagonist from Longfellow's famed poem "The Song of Hiawatha," first published in 1855. The poem enjoyed great success and popularity throughout the rest of the 19th century and much of the 20th century.
