For everyone with continuing interest in a DVD, please be patient. For the past year, UCLA Film and Television Archive, which did the restoration work and which controls the restored version, has been touring a silent print of the film (independently from our larger project). If you want to try to request a screening copy, contact them directly. Here is their site:
Once that tour is complete, we will renew conversations with them about a DVD release with the original score. Until then, we will post some clips of the restored film on our own project site, under Film: Film Samples.
Thank you for your interest.

Hello, I am a middle school student and am doing my National History Day report on Edward S. Curtis. I was wondering if there is any way that I could use some clips from his video in my documentary. If that is at all possible, could you please contact me via email. Thank You

DVD? Surely, we all ask. Perhaps those connected with restoration will care to "leak" portions of working copy (via youtube, archive.org, etc) to further stimulate interest. Official screenings are good, for those with advance notice and proximity to venue. Many more, however, due to health, age, or commitments will never see this project.
What of a newsgroup notification to announce imminent release to better gauge your sales?

I've just discovered the project, tho I have seen a little footage of the original. Any further screenings planned? Certainly the Bay Area ought to be a good audience. Hope you can update the site more often.

Attn: Aaron Glass - Hello and I see your latest comments about possible release and distribution of a DVD of this epic production. I am a Vancouver BC resident but I have lived and resided all over the BC Coast right up to the border with Alaska and amongst many of my fellow Native sisters and brothers communities. I would truly wish ardently to know when a targeted date availability of this movie to interested public members looks probable?
I initially contacted and discussed this with your Humanities Librarian Kevin Mulcahy. Will check back later in New Year to see if you have launched DVD...
All the best for Holidays,
West Vancouver BC Canada

For all those asking about a future DVD, we are currently working with the institutions involved in the restoration to put one in place. Please check back now and again, as we will post the progress of this on the website, which will continue to expand with new project materials in the meantime. Thanks for your interest.

Ditto the previous comments. I see no answer for CD sales of the restored original??
Written by Abeyami Ortega at Tuesday 9 December 2008, 10:54
I attended the lectures and screenig, both wonderful events. How can I keep informed about news regarding the project, for example, DVD release or web activities?
Do you have a mailing list I could suscribe to?
Thank you and congratulations

I echo Tom's question, will this be released on DVD? Unfortunately I only learned about the screenings now, a month too late to attend any.

Is it possible to buy a copy of this film? I bet it would be very popular as a DVD release.

Thank you to the panel speakers this morning at The Field Museum. We greatly enjoyed the film and the commentary afterward. The film raised a lot of good questions, and we enjoyed hearing the discussion. Thank you!

For as long as I can remember, and that goes back into the sixties, the Portland, Oregon, Art Museum supplemented its display of beautifully-carved modern totem poles and period carved masks and boxes with 3X4-foot enlarged stills from, as I later found out, In the Land of The Head Hunters. I had grown so familiar with those enlargements that, when I saw the film "Black Widow", wherein one character is shown watching a tape of In the Land of..., and I saw the photographs move, it was like seeing a statue come to life. Has anybody at curtisfilm talked to the Portland Art Museum? Those stills had to come from somewhere.

I am so disappointed with why my family were not invited to this event and why they hired Bill Cranmer intstead of the Le-La Dancers.I would have hired them for they have more respect regarding my family.
It's a poor setting and the orcrestra didn't fit in and the music didn't match the movie one bit.Burst your bubble?Make sure my family is there to see!!!!!!!!!!!

Greetings from Denmark.
Congratulations with your great achievement of restoring the film. As a scholar of Amerindian studies on the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, I wonder if it is possible to purchase a copy of the movie for our Department.

I find this whole project fascinating. Although I now live in Los Angeles, I was born and raised in British Columbia. To everyone involved - thank you for bringing this wonderful piece of history back to life for all of us to learn from and enjoy.
Will it ever be made available on DVD?
