Title transcribed from item. Signed on mount: "© Frederick Monsen." Monsen's typed label on back says: "Navajo Indians. Arizona. Before the advent of the Spaniards, the Navajo were nomadic. With the introduction of sheep they became pastoral, following their sheep from place to place as necessity compelled new pasture. They are still pastoral and have no permanent homes, and their hogans are widely scattered over their great reservation. They have over a million sheep and great bands of horses, but no cattle. Photograph. Little Navajo sheep herder."
