A large group of adults and children stand or sit in front of an arched doorway in a stone structure at Guadalupe Ocotán, Jalisco, Mexico. Two people stand in the doorway, each holding one side of a rectangular framed object. The people are most likely Wixárika. The scene probably documents a celebration of the Catholic feast of Our Holy of Guadalupe on December 12
Original photograph caption: "12 Diciembre en Guadalupe Ocotán aquí hay gente mas civilizada, pocos son los que usan el traje típico/The feast of Our Holy of Guadalupe in 'Guadalupe Ocotán.' In this place the Indians are more civilized; you hardly meet any Indians with typical costumes."
- year unknown December 12
