actual image size: 22cm x 32cm


Portrait of an elderly man (named Lai-iu-ah-tsai-la, better known as Pedro Pino), a former governor of Zuni pueblo during the 1840s and 1850s, sitting, wearing a concha belt and ornaments. According to James Stevenson's original note for this photograph (prepared circa 1885), '[b]eing able to speak the Spanish language[,] he has had many interesting interviews with the army officers and explorers who have visited successively his pueblo, and his name figures prominently in their reports. He died shortly after his return from the East.'

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.
