Journalist and ethnographer Charles Fletcher Lummis (1859-1928) was a New Englander who moved west to become editor of the Los Angeles Times, but suffered a mild stroke at the age of 29 and spent three years recuperating among the Puebloans of Isleta, New Mexico. He became a vocal advocate for their traditional culture in addition to his photographic documentation of their daily life. Offered here are:
