Photograph of the Hopi Antelope priests in a kiva, an underground club hall, preparing for the snake dance in an Indian religious ritual, Oraibi, ca.1900. Eight Indians sit on a ledge inside the kiva while one Indian sits on the floor amongst them. Of the eight Indians sitting on the ledge, four of them are wearing light necklaces; in which two of them have a large circular object attached like a pendant. In the center of the kiva are two bottles, a pot, a clay teakettle, a bowl, and a variety of ingredients (unidentifiable). The floor in the foreground is littered with scraps of unidentifiable material, a scissor, and a blade of some sort.
