(Documentary Artifact): One b/w photographic print of Jim McCarty (also known as Ha-la-pooka, Jim Cuero or Qualsch), gathering wire grass for making Images (ceremonial figures for Keruk ceremony). Large rocks are in the background. A pickax lies on the ground near the bundle of wire grass he is pulling out of the ground.
