Display of native pottery in the Tigua Cultural Center in Ysleta, one of the original settlements south of present-day El Paso. Text in the display reads: Large ceramic pots or ollas were made by the Tigua and other neighboring Indians of the region (Manos and Piro). These large ollas were made by the Manso Indians at San Jose and San Lorenzo in Ciudad Juarez. Archeologists and other researchers working in the area have used ceramics from excavated sites to trace cultural traditions and amalgamation. Photograph by Susan Dial.
