Pahko’ora/Pahko’ola: Mayo and Yaqui Masks from the James S. Griffith Collection

Wooden masks worn by Pascola dancers hold deep ritual significance for the Mayo and Yaqui communities of southern Arizona and northern Mexico. Showcasing masks from ASM’s James S. Griffith Collection, this exhibit examines masks and related traditions that are integral to the lifeways of the Mayo and Yaqui people. Guest curated by Santiago Benton (Mayo) and Yaqui Pascola elders, in collaboration with Dr. Griffith and Arizona State Museum.

This exhibit and its opening program is made possible in part by grants from Arizona Humanities and the Southwestern Foundation for Education and Historical Preservation.
