The H. O. Hanson Photograph Collection contains 34 large format (8x10") black and white prints, including sixteen images of the Inter-Tribal Ceremonial at Gallup, 1953 and 1954, nine images of the Santa Fe Fiesta, 1952 and 1953, and four images of the Jemez Pueblo. Hanson has not been further identified, but he may have worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The photographs are somewhat unusual: mostly candid shots of the events, focused as much on the crowd as on the performers.
