Arnold Lupson photographs

Arnold Lupson's photographs, which date from 1919 to 1949, are rich in views of First Nations personalities and activities, including the Sarcee (Tsuu T'ina), Blood, Peigan, Blackfoot (Siksika) and Stoney peoples of southern Alberta. A brief biography of Lupson (also known as Eagle Tail) is in the Archives Main Catalogue.

You may view all the currently digitized Lupson photographs (about 800) in date order.
