(Documentary Artifact): Five b/w photographic prints of a group of men performing the Ne Mulp death ceremony for Maria Juana Duro, wife of Joe Burro Waters (or Jose Agua, Jose Burro, Joe Burro Aguae). About five or six men are on their hands and knees in front of two men who are standing. Edward H. Davis wears a white shirt and is on his hands and knees in the front row. Antonio LaChapa (wearing a hat) stands in front of him. Rafael Charley is the other man standing, wearing a net skirt with feathers and headdress. Joe Burro Waters is also in the front row. A couple of other men in the photo are possibly wearing feather headdresses as well. The photo was taken at outdoors at night. This photo is similar to OP 12550-121 and may be the Ne Mulp death ceremony for either Chief Cinon Duro or Maria Juana Duro.
