Playmates – Apsaroke, 1905

Educational and Community Outreach

The Multi-Disciplinary Education Project [2016 onward]

This project allows schoolchildren, adults, and Native people to create their own photographs of Curtis’ imagery, as well as photographs of themselves and their communities. We will provide cyanotype kits (negatives; cultural, biographical, historical and scientific information; pre-sensitized paper; and/or digital equipment). This project will engage students in explorations of science, history, art, photography, and culture. This has the potential to be instituted throughout the country.
