A black and white picture of landscape portraying an Indian settlement

A black and white picture of a landscape portraying an Indian settlement. The community is found on top of a mid-size hill. All houses are made from adobe and wood and have a two-story plan. From left to right the first things that appear are wooden sticks that have been placed vertically as a fence and then houses. In front of the settlement there is a structure that resembles a maze with a medium size wall on the sides.
