Tells the dramatic story of the life of pioneer photographer Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952), who set out in 1900 to document traditional Native American life. He created an enormous body of work-10,000 recordings, 40,000 photographs, and a full-length ethnographic motion picture. The film also gives Native Americans a voice in the discussion of Curtis' images.
