COCOPA INDIAN FULL BODY PAINT
Paul Campbell's research yielded rare California Indian historical pictures such as these antique turn-of-the-centry professional studio portraits of a young Indian boy with full body paint , shell and glass beaded necklaces, and two California Indian men wearing loin clothes, body paints and holding antique 1800s Indian bow and arrows. Paul Campbell's book contains a whole chapter of full-page historical pictures with detailed captions about historic Old Town San Diego County Indians.
