21.25" x 24.5" framed. Portfolio plate number 72, The North American Indian (1907-1930) v.02, The Pima. The Papago. The Qahatika. The Mohave. The Yuma. The Maricopa. The Walapai. The Havasupai. The Apache-Mohave, or Yavapai. "The Havasupai dwelling is dome-shaped framework of poles, sometimes covered with brush and reeds only, in other cases banked well toward the top with earth. The cañon walls shown in the background are of red sandstone, and rise perpendicularly four hundred feet. Back of these walls extend vast stretches of rough, broken country, intersected by many ravines and capped by sharp pinnacles. This picture was taken in early spring, when the peach orchards of the Havasupai were in full blossom." - Edward S. Curtis.
