On 3 July 2024 My Modern Met reported: Photographer and ethnologist Edward S. Curtis spent more than 30 years documenting Native Americans and their traditions. Curtis referred to Native Americans as a 'vanishing race,' and as such, wanted to document the customs and traditions of a wide variety of Native American tribes. ...In 1906, with the sponsorship of J.P. Morgan, Curtis undertook the production of what was set to be a series of 20 volumes with 1,500 photographs of Native Americans. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of culture, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

...Curtis was on the move for more than three decades, living among dozens of tribes. ...While visiting more than 80 tribes, he created 10,000 wax cylinder recordings of Native American language and music, certainly an important component for preserving the tribes' legacy. ...Ultimately, he took over 40,000 images of the tribes he visited and documented a wealth of information about tribal culture.
