Edward Curtis truly gave us a gift. He has helped many Native Americans learn some of their past through his text and photographs. Our ancestors now speak to us in his photographs. ~ Jeanne Eder Rhodes (Dakota)

Because of Curtis, we now have the chance to study the entire dress/regalia and other cultural aspects of that time period and use it to educate our future generations. Tribes can now view that moment in time and understand better what it represented. ~ Tamara Stands and Looks Back-Spotted Tail (Sicangu Lakota known as the Rosebud Sioux Tribe)
