Crow Warrior

This is a stunning photograph of a Crow Warrior. The picture was made by Edward Curtis in 1905. In the closing years of the 1800's, Curtis realized that the proud way of life of the Native Indians of the plains was coming to an end. He set out to document this proud people with his camera. Over the next ten years he traveled the west, and took photographs of Native Americans in their natural habitat.
