Comments on Original Photograph: 

A visitor to the website explains why the caption on this image may be incorrect:

"While the caption reads "Pueblo girls," the Dentalium Shell Earrings worn by two of the girls, and the Silver Concho Belts worn by three of the girls, are both more typical cultural dress of girls from the Northern Plains, such as the Hunkpapa Dakota tribe or the Yankton Dakota tribe, and not the cultural dress of girls from any of the Pueblos of the Southwest."
