MAIMAN FROM MOJAVE TRIBE
The photo shows a Native American guide and interpreter named Maiman, who belonged to the Mojave tribe. The photograph was credited to Timothy O’Sullivan and taken in the Colorado River (now the U.S. states of Arizona and California). Maiman was accompanying O’Sullivan to places where the latter can capture great photographs.
Aside from being friendly to the Western settlers, Mojave tribes are also known for being good in farming, fishing, and hunting. Mojave men and women were known to farm together. The men planted the crops while women harvested them. Aside from food crops, they also grew hemp, tobacco, cotton, and medicinal plants.
