In 1911, famed Northwest photographer Edward S. Curtis travelled to Vancouver Island, British Columbia to visit the Kwakwaka'wakw.

By the next year, needing money for his project, and to add to his research and still photography work, Curtis decided that the best way to record the traditional way of life and ceremonies of the Kwakwaka'wakw was to make one of the first feature motion pictures.

Curtis had already shot footage in 1906 of the Hopi Snake dance, which he had previously showed during his talks, but this was to be on a grander scale. It took three years of preparation for this one film including the weaving of the costumes; building of the war canoes, housefronts, poles; and the carving of masks.
