Image 146

During previous outreach we were told that this man was possibly a scout, a sheep herder, or on the passage to becoming a medicine man. The writing on this photo shows information written by community members in outreach at Navajo Nation.

A version of this image appears in “Navajos, Gods, and Tom-toms,” (1950) by Suren Babington. He notes that this photo is of a Navajo man drying is hair.
