Indians of North America -- Portraits
Found in 13 Collections and/or Records:
Photographic portraits of Native American poets and writers created by Christopher Felver for his book, Tending the Fire: Native Voices and Portraits (University of New Mexico Press, 2017). The collection includes ninety-seven photographs that appear in the work as well as twenty portraits not published in it.
This collection consists chiefly of photographic materials created circa 1850-1978 that depict American Indians, including informal and studio portraits, as well as photographs that show the natural and built environment of the American West.
