This class will take participants on a guided tour of Curtis's rare, original photographs, a treasure housed in the UO Libraries Special Collections. From the mid-1890s to the late 1920s, Edward S. Curtis roamed throughout western North America documenting what he perceived to be the vanishing lifeways of Indians. More than 2,000 of the Curtis images appear in his monumental The North American Indians (1907 – 1930).  This publication is composed of 20 volumes of large photogravures and 20 corresponding volumes of photogravures and text.  In this seminar, Curtis’s own copy of this stunning work will be examined, its aesthetic value will be discussed, and it will be evaluated from a Native perspective. No book is needed.
