Postcard Mojave "Mystic Maze" showing one Mojave Indian sitting and one on horseback in front of the maze.

The postcard states, "The Mystic Maze was constructed by the Mojave Indians many years ago and is associated with and forms a part of their religious beliefs.  The doctrine is that the souls of the departed members of the tribe enter the Maze and wander through it in search of the happy hunting grounds; the good souls succeed in solving the riddle and reach the goal; those other souls wander aimlessly and endlessly, and are at the mercy of the Evil One."
