Photograph of photographer, George Wharton James, taking notes in a small notebook held in his left hand as a Walapai Indian man crouches at left demonstrating how to build a fire, Kingman, Arizona, ca.1902. James has a long beard and mustache. He sits on a striped blanket at right. He wears a hat, trousers, and a vest over a light shirt with a long tie. His jacket is slung across his left forearm. The fire builder, who has a small bundle strapped to his back, kneels with his fire building utensils in hand. He is wearing a hat, trousers, and vest over a light shirt with a bandana around his neck. Jim Fielding, the Indian policeman, wearing a hat and jacket interprets at James' right. To James' left an old Walapai Indian woman clasps her hands over a pottery water jug in front of her as she sits on the ground watching as well. Two windows (one open) are in the wooden wall of a building behind the group. Legible writing (inside the open window) includes: "U.S.I.S."; "The old man is demonstrating to Dr. James how his people start a fire. They gather some every day fibrous wood, cactus or other plants and arrange them on a flat sonte and then whilr a stick of hard whood upon the stone until the ffriction ignites the fiber. Jim Fielding, the Indian Policeman, is interpreting".
