At the request of the U.S. Forest Service, the Southwest Museum sponsored a salvage dig worked by ASA and led by Dave Rice (Rice, 1954/1984; Rozaire, 1958/1984). The excavation of a mourning site in the mountains uncovered a burial, beads, steatite bowls, and a “pelican hook” (Rice, 1954/1984).
Detailed photographs of people working at the excavation near Chilao Ranger Station; in situ and displayed artifacts. ASA001-175 shows the sign at the dig: “Dave Rice, 1700 Santee, LA #15.”
