  • Size: 15.5'' x 11.5''
21.75" x 17.75" mat size. Plate 560. Published in "The North American (1907-1930) v. 16, The Tiwa. The Keres." "The Buffalo dance of the Keres is almost exactly the same as that of the Tewa. The performers are two young men with head-dresses of buffalo-hair and horns, and a girl wearing the usual female costume and a pair of small horns. The head of the hunters' society plays the part of guard. The dance is very strenuous, and the simulated actions of the buffalo are quite realistic and readily comprehended by the spectator." - Edward S. Curtis. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. The owner purchased this in the 1990s.
