(Documentary Artifact): One b/w negative of an outdoor portrait of an unidentified Campo Indian woman. She stands in front of a white-washed wall, holding up a rosary. She wears a dark-colored dress and veil. She is probably not a Catholic nun (as noted on negative envelope) but a lay person.
Notes on negative envelope:
86:15900-416/ Davis Coll/ 86 Dup/ Campo Indians/ Portrait of Catholic sister/ May 1918
*According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: This doesn’t seem to be a nun’s habit. Usually the hair is cut or head shaved and covered by a heavy cloth not a lace veil that can be seen through. These veils were part of the required headcovering typically worn by all women attending mass. This woman appears to be in the garb of a lay person, especially that of an older woman or widow.
**According to additional information provided on 5/2012 by a member of the community: This is Petra Cota.
