1 photographic print.
Photograph shows "San Buenaventura's Day Corn Dance, performed by the two moieties, first the Turquoise, then the Pumpkin, in front of the church and campo santo. The men wear either red or dull blue body paint and have armbands of green and white; the women wear black mantas and bright green tablitas. From the pattern of the tablitas, the dancers appear to be of the Turquoise moiety. Two of the three Koshare clowns who were present can be seen just in front of the chorus; they are covered with bluish-white clay with black markings and have their hair drawn out in top knots."
