Hopi men wearing dance regalia, preparing for Snake Dance. A crowd watches along pueblo walls. Title transcribed from item. Signed on mount: "Frederick Monsen." Monsen's typed label on back says: "Hopi Pueblo, Arizona. Oraibi, oldest and greatest town of the Hopi Indians. It is now nearly deserted and will soon be a ruin. At the time the picture was made, in 1889, Oraibi had a population of over a thousand Indians. At that time the celebration of the Snake Ceremony was an event worth seeing."
