Additional Details:
These interesting Indians numbering in all about two thousand are found in three localities, the majority being located on the Mojave or Colorado River Reservation near parker, Arizona, to the south of Needles. There are many, however, at Needles. The men are tall and finely proportioned, their features are regular, with large eyes shaded long lashes. The women are invariably short in stature. Both sexes more or less elaborately paint the face in bright colors, and delight in wearing coils of blue and white beads. They make pottery of artistic shape, beautiful beadwork and gaily decorated bows and arrows, which they offer for sale to the passengers at Needles.
