Three little Hopi Indians
Hopi children pose prior to dancing in a ceremonial. The boys wear handwoven kilts of fine wool and cotton. Their fringed sashes and kilts are bordered with red, black and green designs pertaining to water or rain. The boys carry gourd rattles and decorated feather shafts. Their thick soled moccasins have the calf length uppers common to the Hopi. The girl dancer wears a black woolen dress trimmed with silver chonchos. Her hand woven sash or girdle is in tones of red, gray, black and white. She has a liquid silver coral and turquoise necklace over the floral silk fringed shawl that drapes across one shoulder. She carries two eagle feathers in each hand. Her head piece or "Tablita" depicts a butterfly with flowers and rain symbols.
