Tamara Muente, Assistant Curator for the Taft Museum of Art provides a preview of the uniquely provocative photography exhibit Enduring Spirit: Edward Curtis and the North American Indians

Curtis captured a disappearing world: the living culture of the American Indian. These exquisite photographs, taken from 1900 through 1930, include celebrated, iconic, and previously unknown images that unforgettably present the lives of the Native American peoples.
