The Jicarilla lived in New Mexico and were on reservation by the time Edward S. Curtis was able to photograph them. Their typical home is a tipi or a lodge called a kozhan. This image depicts a small hilltop lodge named by Curtis after the single tree in the image.

This photogravure was taken by Edward S. Curtis in 1904 and was printed on Dutch Van Gelder Paper. Curtis used this image for his first volume of the North American Indian and it is now available for sale in our Aspen Art Gallery.
