This image shows two Pueblo men in the threshing yard where the wheat they have harvested is broken down. This is done by having people or draft animals walk in a circle on a prepared threshing floor, often dragging a heavy board or log to break up the wheat shafts and ears. After this process is completed, the grain is separated from the shafts through winnowing.
