  1. Pete and his brother, Repete, as my family told us (and I hope it’s not some joke) were identical twins. Pete lived in Navajo Mtn. across the canyon, and his brother lived elsewhere, I think. I have to ask my aunt Mary.

    “Pete Greyeyes, who is identified in this photo, could be his identical twin brother, named RePete. He lived in Tsegi, and was most likely to have traveled to Kayenta, whereas Pete lived across the canyon on Paiute Mesa, and would very rarely make it out, unless he was going to Shonto Trading Post for supplies, through Tall Mountain.”
