Sacred Legacy
Christopher Cardozo

One hundred years ago, Edward Sheriff Curtis began a thirty-year odyssey to photograph and document the lives and traditions of the Native peoples of North America. In this landmark volume, almost 200 of the finest examples of Curtis's photographs are reproduced with startling fidelity to his original prints, and organized by geographic region and tribe according to the principles set forth by the great photographer himself. The most important presentation of Curtis's work since nearly a century ago, the images contained here have had an immense impact on the national imagination and continue to shape the way we see Native life and culture.
