INDIAN OASIS Life Among the Papagos (1957 through 1962)
The Papagos, now called the Tohono O'odham, are among the least known of the Southwestern Indian tribes. They are one of the oldest traditional desert tribes with rich beliefs and customs. The contentment and inner peace of the Papagos, their gentle nature, their adherence to tradition, and their solitude go hand in hand with their peaceful desert.
