OP 15362-1008

(Documentary Artifact): Two b/w photographic prints of Yellow Sky (also known as A-mi Qut-a-Qus, Qut A Qus, Amaay Kwakwas) sitting in the doorway of an adobe brick structure, beating a drum and singing. He is barefoot and wears a breechcloth. This photograph was probably taken on Feb. 2, 1909 in Inaja. In Davis’ notebook (Notebook 10), he describes Yellow Sky singing and playing a toy drum with metal sides and sheepskin top and bottom.
