Ethnographic Notes

Vertical COURTING: Man in Blue Blanket Holds Woman in First-Phase Chief's Blanket Here the man holds the woman within his blanket for the long conversation of courtship (see Plate 9 for Grinnell's description). The man has long braid wrapped in otter fur with ends dangling. He wears a solid blue blanket. His leggings and two breechclout flaps are dark stroud cloth with undyed selvedges creating white stripes. The breech cloth falls below his feet by far in the drawing. The woman is wrapped in the black-and-white striped Navajo first-phase chief�s blanket. The woman�s bare legs show under the man�s blanket.
