j iiauionai ueograpmc society Painting by W. Langdon Kihn From Willow Reeds and Cat's-claw Pods the Pima Woman Makes Her Baskets Five centuries before the Pueblos came into the Southwest, their little-known predecessors in the region were Basket Makers. Pimas still are skilled inthe craft. Tattooed stripes on the woman's chin were highly esteemed make-up in olden days. The husband (left) wears his hair much longer than the women and ties it up at the end in a clublike knot. Pimas, unlike many of the Pueblos, live in one-family houses, some shaped like a flattened dome (right). Thatched roof and walls are supported by stout posts.
