21.75" x 25" framed. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. Plate 1. Published in "The North American Indian (1907-1930) v.01, The Apache. The Jicarillas. The Navaho" E. S. Curtis comment: The thought which this picture is meant to convey is that the Indians as a race, already shorn in their tribal strength and stripped of their primitive dress, are passing into the darkness of an unknown future. Feeling that the picture expresses so much of the thought that inspired the entire work, the author has chosen it as the first of the series.
