US Tribal Colleges Receive a Major Cultural Gift

Major cultural legacy donated to 12 U.S. Tribal colleges

A major U.S. foundation, group of private donors, and Christopher Cardozo Fine Art are donating complete sets of an artisanal Republication of The North American Indian by Edward Curtis to 12 tribal colleges. The donation includes several hundred contemporary Curtis photographs, and a curated, digital collection of materials originally created by Edward Curtis for his landmark photoethnographic publication. With an aggregate value of over $500,000, the donation is being made in recognition of the 10,000 Native Americans who collaborated in the creation of the original publication, and to support current efforts by Native people to reconnect with their history, culture, and traditions.
