Reader: Muskegon museum has ‘must see’ exhibit

TO THE EDITOR:

The Muskegon Museum of Art has mounted a “must see” exhibit featuring 730 incredible photographs of Native Americans by Edward S. Curtis. His 30 years (20 volumes) worth of material also includes language transcriptions and traditional stories of more than 100 tribes of the western U.S.

Curtis’ work was once hailed by The New York Herald as “the most ambitious enterprise in publishing since the production of the King James Bible.”

The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians is one of the major cultural partners of this photographic/anthropological exhibit which is still available for viewing through Sept. 10. I highly recommend taking a trip to view this important work.
