     George Catlin was a Pennsylvania-born artist who produced two major collections of paintings and a series of books chronicling his travels among the American Indians of North, Central and South America. Working from his interest in America's 'vanishing race', he set out to record the appearance and customs of America's native people.

     Catlin’s North American Indian Portfolio was created from drawings and notes of the author, made during eight years of travel among the most remote tribes of North America. The collection of lithographs is a window into the lives of American Indians in the 1830s.
