February 22, 2015
Dan Harshberger forwarded me a link to "The Wallapais" from something called The Four-Track News. Appears to be from about 1910. I was struck by a photograph in the article of a "Wallapai Story Teller," who, in the article is praised as "The best repository of the traditionary [yes, "traditionary"] lore of these people." In the photo, her face is hidden by thick bangs of hair, and, incredibly she is not named, but I am confident she is related to some of the Hualapai kids I went to school with. Because her face is shrouded in massive bangs, she intrigues me even more.
I did a sketch of her last week:

No, wait a minute. Don't like the clarifier. On the next study I softened her undergarments and went with a more moody setting.
