This picture of my mother as a child was taken at the time of a visit to her home in Henryetta by Juanita, a young Hopi woman, who was studying at Bacone College in Muskogee, nearby. Note the hair style. Juanita had placed her hair into a traditional Hopi maiden whorl hair style. She is also holding a Hopi pot, no doubt a gift from Juanita. By the way, the hair was a bright red-orange; her nickname, with some, was Carrot-top!
This photograph is badly faded (it is over 70 years old, circa 1920), but the house is the one I grew up in. The house in the background has been replaced, but the big yard on the west side of the house (between the two houses seen here) was where I played baseball with the rest of the neighborhood kids, all boys, throughout my elementary school years.
