Edward Sheriff Curtis, or the "Shadow Catcher" as he was later called by some of the tribes, took over 40,000 images and recorded rare ethnographic information from over eighty American Indian tribal groups, ranging from the Eskimo or Inuit of the far north to the Hopi people of the Southwest. This film explores the history of Curtis' accumulated works.
