From Our Editors

This book is meant to provide an appreciation, in words and photographs, of the lesser-known groups of Indians in the United States and Mexico. The Papagos are so little known to outsiders despite the fact that their reservation is the second largest in the United States says something about their humility. It also says something about the average Papago's sense of self because in reality, the average Papago sees no point in being public.
