The Apache-Mohave, or Yavapai." "Hanamh is the Piman name for the cholla cactus and its fruit. The natives gather the fruit of this spiny plant in large quantities, and it forms a food of material importance to the several tribes living within its habitat. In gathering it they use rude tongs made from a split stick. After a basket is filled, the fruit is spread on the ground and bushed about with a small, stiff besom until the spines are worn off, or the spines are burned of in an open fire." - Edward S. Curtis. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. The owner has authorized us to lower the price from $1,175 to $740.
