Carl Everton Moon became interested in the Native Americans and their art from an early age and with an aptitude for photography set up a studio in 1903 to take photographic studies of the South-western Pueblo Indians. By 1906 his photographs began appearing in magazines and his work was exhibited at the Smithsonian Institute, and then by the special invitation of President Roosevelt, a selection was shown in the White House. This national attention secured him a commission from the Fred Harvey company to create a collection of Indian photographs and in 1911 he moved to the Grand Canyon, built a studio and for 7 years documented the Indian peoples of the area both in studio portraits and in their natural context. A collection of these images was purchased by the Natural History Museum of the Smithsonian in 1910. This carbon print is one from the same series.
