NOTE: The original cartes were dedicated to Lorenzo Hubbell (Nakai Tao) Jo's pal and trader from the Navajo Reservation. An interesting point about the Indian items, drawn on each side of the cartes were items owned by Jo which he collected while living in Mokiland from 1904 through 1906. The cartes were printed by Arthur Fey in San Francisco on uncoated paper.

In 1950 Arthur Fey again printed this carte but this time decided to print it on semi-glossy paper which was popular then and helped keep these wonderful colors longer. This printing was chosen for the 1998 Monterey Museum of Art catalogue for the triibute show to Jo Mora.
