Laguna Pueblo Pottery - C4075It is well recognized that it is difficult to determine if a particular jar was made at Laguna Pueblo in the early 20th century because they have a similarity to those made at Acoma Pueblo.  It is easier to attribute a jar to having been made at Acomo, thereby eliminating the justification for having stated it was made at Laguna.
