Traditional Cocopah home built as part of exhibit

Yuma, Arizona (AP) 10-08

Elders of the Cocopah Tribe are directing a small crew of workers in erecting a traditional home on the tribe’s southwestern Arizona reservation.

The traditional home will serve as the Cocopah Museum’s newest exhibit, which will be showcased during the tribe’s annual Cocopah Cultural Celebration on Oct. 18.

The museum staff has typically built some form of a traditional building in recent years for every other Cocopah Cultural Celebration.

The house currently being built just outside the museum will be similar but constructed as a longer-lasting exhibit.

The frame of the building is being made of slender willow trees, while the roof and walls will be thatched with dried arrowweed.
