Campo Indian Reservation, San Diego County, California
Most crosses were painted white, while some were black and others blue. A few crosses had ribbon stapled around their perimeters, pulled tight. When the wind hit the ribbon in the right direction, it made a sound similar to that of a didjerido, the Aboriginal music instrument. Walking about the cemetery, you can hear this sound at different frequencies depending on which direction the wind blew.
