This Is How Native Americans Lived 100 Years Ago (Pictures)

Posted by-Kalki Team

The culture of the indigenous Americans was very rich, but it began to fade during the beginning of the 20th century. Edward Sheriff Curtis in his entire life has recorded and captured the lifestyle of the primitive tribes in North America. His exclusive work includes some of the most alluring pictures from that era.

Edward spent more than 20 years and travelled across the continents and captured over 40,000 images of over 80 tribes. He also recorded their languages and songs and transcribed oral stories and biographies.

Have a look at the extensive work of Edward!
