A part of the present-day Washaquip-vats dance ceremony which is older than the memory of man's ancestors. It is said to have been handed down in part from Mayan days and is based on the ancient calendar when every 260 days all the natives bring earthen-ware to be broken on a huge pile. It is symbolic of their new year. Photo dated: November 28, 1934.
