Navajo Land Large Postcard

Information on Back of Postcard
Navajo children and their watchful mothers. The gaily blanketed beast of burden a necessary adjunct to life in the vast distances of Southwest Country. Crushed velvet, turquoise and silver compliment the sun bronzed skin of the Navaho.
I think this Rembrant Postcard (Colorado Springs) is probably from the late 1950's early 1960's. About 5 1/2 in by 8 in.

What I really like about this card is that they look happy and comfortable. Sometimes you'll see a card of Native Americans from the 50s or 60s, dressed up the way other people thought they should...and often they look uncomfortable or embarrassed.
