The description states:

14–NAVAHO INDIANS AT HOME

The Navajo Indians, 50,000 in number, show little influence of the advance of civilization, living by the primitive methods of their forefathers. Many of them live in such remote districts far from civilization that they seldom see a white man.

Their hand made blankets, of wool from the sheep raised by them are known for their unexcelled quality and design throughout the world. Their hand made jewelry is as much sought for.

–This image likely dates from the 1940s.
