Description
Photograph of a view of a cemetery in Cahuilla showing Ramona standing near the grave of Alessandro, ca.1900. The woman is standing at center and facing to the left with her hand on the wooden grave marker of her deceased husband. She is wearing a long dress and light-colored shirt. There are several other small, wooden, cross-shaped, grave markers in the area around Ramona, and behind and to the right of her are four gravesites surrounded by wooden picket fences. There is a large rock formation on a hill in the background at right. Ramona and Alessandro were Cahuilla Indians upon whom Helen Hunt Jackson based her book Ramona.
