There are five recorded trips that took Mora to Western states ,1904, 1911, 1926, 1931, 1933-1934.  The Mora brothers would visit reservations to paint Native American families.  A monumental oil, Navajo Family, was produced in 1934 and exhibited at the National Academy of Design in the same year.   When last seen, it was owned by Cornelia Colton, the heir of Mora's second wife.
