Fenimore Art Museum

Cooperstown, NY

In 1900, photographer Edward S. Curtis began a massive project to photograph the Native American people of the United States. Thirty years later, it resulted in a 20-volume, 20 portfolio set of handmade books entitled The North American Indian—one of the most ambitious publishing projects in American history. In this exhibit, see rare images from Volume 10 of the series, focusing on the Kwakiutl.
