Alice Roosevelt Longworth, the first child of President Theodore Roosevelt, once noted, “I was the daughter of an enormously popular president, and . . . I looked upon the world as my oyster.” This photograph by Edward Curtis was taken in 1906, the year Alice married Congressman Nicholas Longworth, and also the year that Curtis published The North American Indian. The photographer’s ambitious publication documents Native American life and provides a photographic record of “more than eighty of North America’s native nations.”
