Heart of the Circle: Photographs of Native American Women

by , ,

Seattle-based photographer Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952) spent the first three decades of the twentieth century compiling an unparalleled photographic record of North America's indigenous peoples. His written and photographic records were published in twenty volumes as The North American Indian. Heart of the Circle is the first book devoted exclusively to Curtis's images of Native American women. Over 100 intimate and revealing portraits are included of women making pottery, tending infants in cradleboards, hauling wood, harvesting wild berries, grinding corn, stretching hides, and butchering game. The portraits are grouped by geographic region and accompanied by carefully researched, informative text. Hide synopsis
