Here are some excerpts from the stories we’re collecting as part of The Descendants Project.™ We’ll continue to post new excerpts here as we find and record new stories. If you know of someone who may be a descendant of a person photographed by Edward Curtis, please let us know. We want their stories to be heard.

Meet The Descendants

To read a brief story about each Descendant, click on their image above or on their name below.

Coming soon! More stories from the Descendants Project.
