Place:
North America
Date:
1928
Scope and Contents:
The collection consists of 38 drawings made by Wolf Robe Hunt, under the direction of his father, Edward Proctor Hunt (also known as Gi-rri), who was a member of the Koshari. The Hunts were part of a group from Acoma Pueblo and Santa Ana Pueblo visting Washington in September and October 1928. The drawings were used to illustrate Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 135, "Origin Myth of Acoma and Other Records." The drawings have been annotated by Matthew W. Stirling and the collection also contains his original captions for publication.

Please note that the contents of the collection and the language and terminology used reflect the context and culture of the time of its creation. As an historical document, its contents may be at odds with contemporary views and terminology and considered offensive today. The information within this collection does not reflect the views of the Smithsonian Institution or National Anthropological Archives, but is available in its original form to facilitate research.
Arrangement:
The drawings are arranged in the order they appear in "The Origin Myth of the Acoma and Other Records."
Biographical Note:
Wolf Robe Hunt (1905-1977), also known as Wayne Henry Hunt and Kewa, was an Acoma artist. Hunt is most known for his silversmithing and turquoise jewelry, but was also a painter, dancer, lecturer, and writer. He owned and operated various trading posts and galleries in Oklahoma.
Local Numbers:
NAA MS 4290
Conservation Note:
The drawings were laminated between thin sheets of cellulose acetate in the 1950s, probably at the National Archives. The laminate is still whole but is subject to tearing, cracking or splitting.
Publication note:
The drawings were reproduced in Stirling, Matthew W. "Origin Myth of Acoma and Other Records." Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 135 (1942).
Variant Title:
Drawings of kachinas and ceremonial apparatus
Related Materials:
The National Anthropological Archives holds the Wolf Robe Hunt papers (NAA.1979.0402).

Audio recordings made during the Hunts' visit are now held by the Library of Congress American Folklife Center in Matthew Stirling and Frances Densmore collection of Acoma Pueblo cylinder recordings [sound recording] (AFC 1948/142). The National Anthropological Archives holds mansucripts related to these audio recordings in MS 4482 and MS 4533.
