Here we present a stunning image called "Waters Edge". It was taken in North Dakota in 1908 by Edward S. Curtis.    The image shows a Young Arikara Indian Girl standing in shallow water, wearing a buckskin dress, with trees in background.    We have created this collection of images primarily to serve as an easy to access educational tool. Contact curator@old-picture.com.
