George Catlin traveled the North American continent from 1830-1838 to chronicle the people, customs and traditions of Native American tribes. His life's ambition was to record Native American culture before it disappeared. His adventures resulted in over 600 portraits and scenes of rituals, hunting and daily life of over fifty North American tribes.
