Five adults and children (one a child carried by another person) stand in front of a structure with a thatched roof, probably in Zaymasita, Jalisco, Mexico. The majority of the people are probably Wixárika. One of the people is a Catholic priest, who stands on the left, looking at the photographer but facing toward the group of four people to the right. The priest's right hand is outstretched, and he holds a book in his left hand. Two adults stand in the background. The people are probably participating in a Catholic ceremony
Original photograph caption: "[Zaymasita?]"
- Schwendeman, Joseph R., 1897-1984
