The Yavapai tribe of Arizona were mainly hunter-gatherers, following an annual round, migrating to different areas to follow the ripening of different edible plants and movement of game. The Yavapai built brush shelter dwellings and in summer, they built simple lean-tos without walls. Curtis created a total of two (2) copper photogravure plates from his visits with the Yavapai and one (1) remains available to collectors today.
