PAI-PAI PAI Indian Lifestyle Pictures
Pai Pai Indian elder Teresa Castro stands in front of her makeshift workshop with three of her grandsons and one of their Indian ranch dogs for a professional picture, March 2006.
The photograph is one photo in a photojournalism picture essay series about Native American California Indigenous lifestyles and living conditions in the 21st Century.
The Castro family is famous for their California Indian ethnographic arts and crafts, including pine needle basketry, agave fiber sandals, Agave fiber net bags, willow bark skirts, and clay pottery.
The Castro ranch is without electricity and all water must be brought in or taken from local hand-dug wells. The ranch still uses an old fashioned outhouse.
This professional lifestyle picture essay is part of professional tribal documentary photo series on the Indigenous California Indian lifestyles of North America, USA and Mexico.
