  • Review: The Tohono O’odham and Pimeria Alta

    Review By Dawn Karima Pettigrew
    News From Indian Country


    The pages of The Tohono O’odham and Pimeria Alta depict the lifeways of these Arizona tribal nations in black-and-white, historical photographs. These detailed photographs show the heritage of these noble people and juxtapose their traditional culture with the impact of contact and assimilation. Some of these images illustrate the dances and regalia of the tribe, while others present the people in the clothing and practices of their colonizers. As a result, these pictures provide a powerful means of examining historical, social and political transitions within these tribes.
