Indian Days of the Long Ago: The Culture, Ceremonial Traditions, and Life of the Native American Tribes, Told Through the Story of Kukúsim

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

With more than 200 photographs and drawings, Edward S. Curtis chronicles the culture, hunts, and traditions of the Native American tribes through the character of Kuk sim.



Vivid and flanked by detailed pictures throughout, the explanations of life among the Native Americans of olden years is evocative. The passion of the author, who wished to preserve the knowledge and culture of the tribes for the future, drives a narration informed by years of experience. Curtis lived and bonded with the tribes, learning of their customs, rituals, dances and folklore. His respect for their way of life and age-old customs are represented in this fine work, which seeks to offer readers an impression both easily read and deeply insightful.



At some points in the story, we are given sheet music with the popular melodies of the Native Americans. We learn how the warriors and hunters of the tribe looked, how their homes were built, how they were accomplished in sailing the rivers, and the various ceremonies that underpinned the life of the community. Going beyond the iconic or romanticized symbols of the Native Americans, we are invited to discover the lesser-known finer points of everyday life, in a culture spanning centuries.
