#tellanewstory Amelia Anne Duntsteder was the first female photographer in Natchez, Mississippi. She was driven to capture and preserve evidence of the Ouachita Indian tribe. Her photographs were imprinted with twin flaming torches to symbolize eternal life. To this day her works provide invaluable glimpses of these amazing people.
