Scope and content

Used in the CM 4-37-4. Shipibo school girls with embroidered designs on their costume. One girl stands to show her skirt. They were artistic people and lived in the Shipibo Village near Caco, Peru where the South America Mission to Indians had a station. The first in a series of photos related to Margaret A. Epp's travel to Peru to meet her sister, a Krimmer Mennonite Brethren missionary. Mrs. Mary Baker was taking photographs and was likely the photographer. In the second photo a mother sits with 3 children. This tribe had no walls in their houses, only floors. This series continues to 2010-14.407.
