(Documentary Artifact): One b/w photographic print of strips of squash drying from lines hanging from timber posts of a ramada. A woman sits near the doorway of a house. According to Davis’ notes on the verso of the print: ‘Very often a whole squash will be dried in one long strip + when cured, will be wound + tied up in a great hank + laid away for future food. It is cut up in small pieces + boiled in an olla.’
Same image as the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) print, P00221.
