Abstract

Record level- This series contains forty-three images of Shungopovi Day School on Second Mesa. These 1944 scenes portray the children on playground equipment, in their classrooms, and in the schoolyard. Activities depicted include swinging on swings, playing basketball, spinning Hopi tops, and making moccasins. Also shown are the children walking to school from their villages, posing at the top of the trail to the village, and boarding a bus for a trip. The photographs reveal the school building, classrooms inside the building, the school bell on a stone pedestal out front, a supplies truck at the school, and a children's art exhibit held in the school. People in the pictures include many unidentified children; an un-named day school assistant; teacher, Mrs. Conolly; and principal and teacher, Mr. John Conolly.
