description
View of multi-storeyed buildings surrounding the main plaza of Tewa pueblo on First Mesa, with several people standing on the roof of a building in the distance. According to James Stevenson's original note for this photograph (prepared circa 1885), Tewa 'has been located for over two hundred years on an elevated mesa whose summit does not succeed a half a mile in length, together with two villages of [...] W[a]lpi and Sichom[ovi]. Although the Tewas have thus resided in close proximity to these two pueblos unallied in speech, and sustained intimate relations to them, they have nevertheless retained their language with a great degree of purity.'

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
