The collection consists of an album of photographs made by H. E. Hoopes made in Arizona and New Mexico in August 1902. The photographs document people, domestic activities, and ceremonies at Acoma, Hano, Isleta, Laguna, and the Hopi towns of Mishongnovi, Oraibi, Sishomove, including the Flute Dance at Mishongnovi and the Snake Dance at Oraibi. There are also a few photographs of Navajo Indians and scenic views of the Petrified Forest.
Homer Eachus Hoopes was born in Lima, Pennsylvania in 1848. He was a pharmacist in Media, Pennsylvania and member of a camera club that included A. C. Vroman. These photographs were likely made on one of the camera club's excursions and, as such, some of his photographs are similar to those of other club members.
