Life of American Indians in Pictures (100 pics)

Posted in Pictures   22 Nov 2010   / 10160 views

Here’s a bunch of pictures made by Edward S. Curtis in 1906. The whole set of 1,500 photographs released in 20 volumes can be found in the book entitled "The North American Indian.” Curtis' goal was not just to photograph, but to document, as much American Indian traditional life as possible before that way of life disappeared. Curtis got $75,000 for his work from J.P.Morgan.

These ARE the Americans (people from America)! Natives from both continents North and South are real Americans. And yes, this place did look peaceful because they seem to have small tribes. In Mexico and South America populations were denser and civilization was more elaborate that's why they seemed to be more violent with each other because they had an "army".
