Indian Fry Bread
Christina and Dora Sepulvado are talked about today as if they were alive because their acts of charity are legend. In
the early 1900’s, the Ebarb community was rural and isolated, without electricity or indoor plumbing. When someone
died, Dora made the coffin and Christina hand-sewed the burial clothes. During the building of the coffin, the loved
one was laid out on a door in the home for the “setting up” or “wake”.
