The Santa Fe Railroad became on of the largest United Sates railway companies by getting land grants from the U. S. Government. The railway then sold off the land in parcels to farmers. The image of the 'Chief' was introduced in the 1930's in a rare poster for the San Francisco Chief Santa Fe New Train to Chicago and Texas. The American Indian was present in many of the Santa Fe Railway posters not only as this 'Chief' image; but also as braves as seen in other antique posters.
