Mongolia will host a renowned
collection of rarely seen photographs of North American Indians later
The exhibit, called "Sacred
Legacy," contains 60 museum-quality photographs of North American
Indians from different tribes and regions.
The photos were taken by Edward
Sherriff Curtis between 1890 and 1930. Curtis understood he was documenting
a culture which was quickly vanishing. Through his pictures, it is possible
to view the people, the dress, and the day to day lives of more than
80 North American Indian nations.
Curtis is well known for his
portraits, landscapes and still life photos. The exhibit is currently
on a worldwide tour.
