The first feature-length film featuring the original inhabitants of North America places real aspects of primitive nations into the genre of melodrama. The film exists at the intersection of two myths: mystical Nature and a fatalistic Story of Love.

Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952) was an American photographer and ethnologist who documented the culture of North American Indian tribes.
