Members of the Postal Union of the Americas and Spain (PUAS) joined to dedicate an international series of stamps. The series was designed to familiarize the people of the member nations with one another. The first issues honor the Native Americans who existed prior to Columbus' arrival in the New World. The carved figure on the stamp is from the Mimbres, a Southwest Indian culture.
