EDWARD S Curtis shot Indians. Not with guns and riffles, which was common at the time, but with a camera. His goal was not only to photograph, but also to document as much American Indian traditions as possible before that way of life disappeared. In the first decade of the twentieth century Curtis and his camera with tripod visited more than eighty tribes in North America. The Native Americans portrayed wear the fashion at the time.
