Image: Pima Flutes

Detail of three Pima or Maricopa flutes, as shown in [Russell 1908], page 166, figure 80. Russell labels the three flutes (a), (b), and (c) — which correspond to the upper, middle, and lower flute in this image, respectively.

See Indigenous North American Flutes for more context about this image.

This image is a recent transfer from the original black and white glass negative taken by De Lancey W. Gill. Citation: BAE GN 2679 B, National Anthropological Archives, Smithsonian Institution, housed in the National Anthropological Archives, Smithsonian Museum Support Center, Suitland, Maryland. Note that this image only shows the three flutes — the original image also shows two “ceremonial wands”.
