The photographer Horace Poolaw (Kiowa, 1906–1984) was born near the Wichita Mountains in the Oklahoma and Indian Territories, which became the state of Oklahoma in 1907. In photographs taken between the 1920s and 1950s, he captured images of his community; a people in transition, but preserving its culture within modern America. This book, published to accompany an exhibition at The National Museum of the American Indian, presents over 150 photographs and several essays by Native American writers and scholars.
