Edward S. Curtis, photographer of the American West and of Native American peoples, was known to have staged events and manipulated photographs.

Dancing to Restore an Eclipsed Moon caption reads “It is thought that an eclipse is the result of an attempt of some creature in the sky to swallow the luminary. In order to compel the monster to disgorge it, the people dance round a smoldering fire of old clothing and hair, the stench of which, rising to his nostrils, is expected to cause him to sneeze and disgorge the moon.”
