Two Taos young women carry large water jugs upon their heads through the forest. Dressed in long dark dresses that drape all the way around their face. They have a clearly used path in a wooded area.

The people of Taos, northernmost of all pueblos, and those of Picuris, a mountain village about 20 miles southeastward, speak the same tongue, a dialect of the Tiwa branch of the Tanoan stock language. - Edward Curtis
