The Indian and Mexican Buildings at Albuquerque, New Mexico, houses the finest, rarest, and most interesting collection of Indian and Mexican handiwork in this country. In this building you can see Indian women carding, spinning and dyeing wool and weaving blankets. The men making primitive silver ornaments. All this carried on in the very crude way handed down by generations long past.
