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.
