This stereograph features Hopi people gathered in traditional ceremonial clothing performing in the village. The title along the bottom right edge describes the scene as a "Katchina dance to the rain gods." The publisher's name is printed on either end of the images. The back of the stereograph gives a brief history on the ceremony and the clothing used for traditional Hopi ceremonies.
