Case Location0034
Cultural AffiliationZuni
Date of Manufactureca. 1850-1860
DescriptionThis was collected at Zuni, but it's possible that it's Navajo. The Ramah Navajo live next door to Zuni, and interaction between the two groups is longstanding and frequent. The jar is crudely made for a Zuni piece (though better made than artifact number 33), but there are crudely made Zuni jars in many collections. The painted rim is common at Zuni but atypical for the Navajo, so this small jar is probably Zuni but shows Navajo influence in the punctuated surface decoration.
