Scope and Contents note:
Photographs relating to a W. J. McGee expedition to southern Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. They document Yuma and Tohono O'odham Indians, dwellings, archery, and pottery.
Biographical/Historical note:
W. J. McGee (1853-1912) was a self-educated geologist, anthropologist, and hydrologist best known for his work with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE). He was hired as a geologist for the USGS by its director, Major John Wesley Powell. McGee stayed with the USGS until 1893, when he resigned to join the Bureau of American Ethnology, again working under Powell. During his time with the BAE, McGee made three expeditions to southern Arizona and northern Sonora in 1894, November 1895 - January 1896, and 1900. McGee's first expedition, which focused on the Tohono O'odham Indians of southern Arizona, was documented by photographer William Dinwiddie. Tohono O'odham interpreter Jose Lewis accompanied the group. The latter two expeditions were organized to study the Seri Indians, a small band of whom McGee had encountered in 1894. These expeditions were photographed by J. W. Mitchell and De Lancey Gill, respectively. McGee resigned from the BAE in 1903.

Scope and Contents:
Series 7: Tohono O'odham contains photographs from 1969-1995 and 2002. The Tohono O'odham people live primarily in the Sonoran Desert of Eastern Arizona and Northwestern Mexico. As of 2016, the Tohono O'odham Nation has around 28,000 enrolled members and covers about 2.8 million acres of land. Helga Teiwes visited the Tohono O'odham Nation frequently over the years, taking a particular interest in the the annual saguaro fruit harvest, called Hasan Baihi. The harvested fruit was once used as a vital food source and is still used today to make jam and wine that is used in a ceremony to bring rain to the desert. This series contains photographs from 1982 of Juanita Ahill and her family gathering the saguaro fruit and processing the fruit to make jam and the ceremonial wine, called nawait. Juanita Ahill's niece, Stella Tucker, continued the tradition. Photographs from 1994 show Stella Tucker and family gathering the Saguaro fruit and canning of the jam and wine. Other events Teiwes photographed included the San Xavier elders parade, the San Xavier Powwow as well as the Tumacacori Fiesta. In addition to events, Teiwes photographed the daily lives of people she visited with. The photographs contain images of men plowing the fields and farming as well as women such as Anna Sarficio, Aloisa Juan, and Frances Manuel, weaving and making pottery. Photographic types include 6x6cm black and white and color negatives, 35mm color slides, transparencies and photographic prints. The prints (8.5x8.5cm), which are from the 1982 Saguaro cactus harvest, were made from the 6x6cm color negatives.

This image is possibly depicting the land allotment process.

Following a career as a chiropractor in Tuscon, Arizona, Gary Auerbach began working as a professional photographer in 1991. Concerned about the long-term permanence of his photographs, Auerbach taught himself the platinum printing process. Starting in 1992, Auerbach began photographing American Indians and published these photos, accompanied by biographical information and questionnaires from his subjects, in We Walk in Beauty.
