One of the most complex works on the indigenous people of North America from the 20th century.
Do you know who Edward Sheriff Curtis was? This Wisconsin based photographer, born in 1868, was the author of one of the most impressive photographic evidence on North American life of the early 20th century. Mostly known for his photo of Princess Angeline, the daughter of the Duwamish chief Seattle, for whom the city was named, he spent more then 20 years traveling across the North America, creating over 40,000 pictures, thousands of wax cylinder recordings of songs and language and hundreds of pages covering oral history, folk tales, legends and biographies of the members of over 80 native tribes.
