“A trip to Magdalena at fiesta time may be made for the purpose of acquiring or replenishing a saint’s image. A Papago may acquire such an image (usually spoken of as "a saint") when he or one of his family or animals needs help, often in the form of continued or renewed health.” From the “The Magdalena Holy Picture: Religious Folk Art in Two Cultures” by James S. Griffith
