Description

Group portrait of three Hopi girls, sitting on rocks, with a blanket hanging on a wall behind them. According to James Stevenson's original note for this photograph (prepared circa 1885), the 'hair is worn in this way so long as they remain unmarried, after which time it is worn down.'

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
