A new edition of an Aperture Classic. From 1896 to 1930, Edward S. Curtis traveled throughout the United States, making a vivid record of the Native American peoples and their way of life. He became, after a long immersion in the cultures and traditions of the Native Americans, an adopted son of Black Elk. The North American Indians , as the project was named, comprised twenty volumes of text each accompanied by a portfolio of plates. It is a visual record unequaled in the history of photography. Many of the most significant photographs have been selected for this Aperture book. These remarkable images of the Native American people and their homes, villages, and landscape reveal how their lives were molded by the integrity of nature and by the rich traditional values of their culture.
