Sacred Legacy North American Indian Exhibition

Pelican Bird smiles when she sees the early summer sun chasing away cool air around the old creek in Arizona. After a long walk, it is good to finally reach the water. This Navajo girl has so much to do today, and she must go back to see her mother soon.
It appears that Pelican Bird is walking to the creek right before your eyes. But, in fact, it happened more than 100 years ago. It was Edward S. Curtis, a photographer and an ethnographer, and his camera that have brought Pelican Bird back to life.
The Pelican Bird will walk at Lanna Architecture Center in Chiang Mai September 7-21. Sacred Legacy: Edward S. Curtis and the North American Indian is a unique photographic exhibition created expressly for American embassies around the world. The principal purpose of the sixty-print exhibition is to celebrate Native American people, their history, and culture. The exhibition illustrates the broad and extraordinary diversity among the North American tribes and pays homage to the work of Curtis, one of America’s most famous photographers.
The exhibition, which will be showing in Bangkok and Hat Yai, U.S. Cultural Attaché Kenneth L. Foster explained, “I remember seeing these same famous photos of Native Americans as a child. These beautiful and enduring cultural artifacts still fascinate us today and will continue to captivate the imagination of generations to come.”
The sixty rare photos in this exhibition have been drawn from the archive of the personal collection of Christopher Cardozo, who holds the largest and most broad-ranging Curtis collection in the world.
