Warriors and princesses, dancers and chiefs, Native Americans have fascinated non-natives for hundreds of years. As settlers pushed westward and conflicts over land rights were waged, photographers such as the legendary Edward S. Curtis took intimate portraits of the people whose lives were indelibly changed by American expansion. Now part of the National Geographic Image Collection, these photographs are at times tragic but often magical, providing a window to the past and glimpses into richly diverse cultural traditions.
