Southern Miwok photographs from Edward S. Curtis’s The North American Indian v. 14 (1924) are listed below.
The North American Indian by Edward S. Curtis is one of the most significant and controversial representations of traditional American Indian culture ever produced. Issued in a limited edition from 1907-1930, the publication continues to exert a major influence on the image of Indians in popular culture. Curtis said he wanted to document "the old time Indian, his dress, his ceremonies, his life and manners." . . . . Curtis was known to have provided set props and eliminated non-traditional clothing and objects from the scenes he represented. . . . [What] is actually featured in the photographs [is] not necessarily the complete or appropriate cultural objects associated with the persons portrayed in the early twentieth century.
