Quotes from the news wire:
These Native people who actively participated in creating this record with him were very much giving of themselves, they're very present, they're open, vulnerable in some cases. They're really trying to share who they are as human beings. ... It's an incredible message about resilience. It's a great message about diversity, inclusion, passion, persistence, vision.
The work is being used actively by Native people to help them rediscover who they are, what their language was, what their customs and rituals were, in many cases, the descendants of people who Curtis photographed have no photographs of them. If you think of what conditions were like in 1900, even if they were given photographs -- which often happened -- they've been lost or destroyed. I am finding that the Native people, overwhelmingly, really appreciate what Curtis and their ancestors did together.
Seeing Curtis' work for the first time ... that was one of the most transformative experiences of my life, being able to bring what is fundamentally a healing message to the world ... being able to bring something to people that has such an impact all over the world on all kinds of people -- that is just an amazing joy.
