Polychrome Ceramic Canteen

Polychrome Ceramic Canteen

Museum signage: These flattened, disk-shaped canteens are unique to Las Humanas. A person could transport 4 to 5 gallons of water in a large one by suspending it from a tumpline around the forehead or chest, with the heavy canteen supported on the back. Perhaps the Indians used these canteens to transport well water back to the pueblo.
