Hopi. My very favourite picture. I love this tribe and I think this must be an Edward Curtis photograph? So beautiful.
The Yuma, 1907, photograph by Edward S. Curtis.
This picture was taken by Edward Curtis in 1927. The Indian's name was "Two Guns". Curtis traveled the country in the late 1800's and early 1900's documenting Native Americans through his photography. His pictures have become treasures giving us a glimpse into traditional Native American life.
