OP 12550-167

(Documentary Artifact): Two b/w photographic prints of four men noted to be ceremonial dancers, standing in a row in front of a ramada made of logs and branches. From left: Joe Burro Waters (or Jose Agua, Jose Burro, Joe Burro Aguae), Edward H. Davis, Narciso Lachapa (also spelled Narcisco/Narcisso Lachappa/LaChapa/La Chapa), Antonio Maces. Each man wears a feather headdress. Davis holds a rattle (?) in his right hand.

Notes on verso of print:
Image 1: OP 12550-167/ 86:15752-167/ Also OP 12572-90/ [Possibly written by Davis:] Jose Burro- EH Davis/ Narciso Lachapa – Antonio Maces – Ceremonial dancers
Image 2: [ Same as Image 1]

According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: Davis may actually be holding another feathered wand that was used in the headdress. Owl feathers (and others) are often bound to a pointed stick and stuck inside a headband.
