Views of the Southwest, Native Americans and their weavings

Identifier: HP.1996.17-MNM.1996.634

Content Description

847 35mm color slides primarily related to the Southwest and the Native Americans of that region. The majority show Navajo and pueblo weavers, their blankets and other weavings. More than 200 relate to the practice of "finger weaving" or the making of strips for belts, sashes, and other items. The donor, Alta Ann Morris, disclosed that these materials were created by her father, L.C. Turner and his wife, avid collectors of southwestern weavings and ceramics, during their numerous trips to the area during the late 1930s to 1950s.
