(Documentary Artifact): One b/w negative of a view of a wagon under a ramada made of logs and branches.
Notes on negative envelope:
86:15900-1213/ Davis Coll/ dup. Neg./ Shelter for Indian Wagon/ a ‘wagon port’/ 1930
According to additional information provided on 10/2011 by a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: This is not a wagon port, but a ramada or in the ‘Iipay language, aakeyuuch. The ramadas were outdoor living spaces for the Kumeyaay- Diegueno people. They were often constructed during fiestas or other gatherings to help house the visitors. People may have sold food from their ramada or held games inside during the celebration. They also slept there while visiting. This grouping resembles a gathering or fiesta style encampment.
