French photographer Tartoue traveled throughout Oklahoma from the late 1930s to the early ’50s, documenting generations of American Indian families through paintings and photographs. What emerged was a striking collection of work that celebrates the commitment to culture and family in a community that has faced harsh challenges. Peruse Tartoue’s 22 black-and-white photos, a selection that appears as a powerful tribal-family album.
