Cherokee Bead Worker, North Carolina

This is another photo of the woman shown in the lower left of the previous image. She still holds the bead making device she had in the previous picture, and sits on the same steps with much of the same pottery as shown before. It is easier to see the beaded headband she wears, presumably an example of her own work.

While the head band and shawl drape she wears appear to be of Native design and production, the dress and necklace is more typical of clothing worn widely throughout the United States during this time.

The legend on the front says: Cherokee Pottery and Bead Worker, Cherokee Indian Reservation, N.C.

This card also has no description on the back. Unlike the others in this series, this one has a date printed on the front, so it can be definitely dated to 1937.
