General NotesYoung Indian male in native dress (bare-chested, wearing feathered headdress, woolen leggings, hair in long braids) is seated in front of a display of woolen blankets. In his left hand he holds a long pipe with perhaps a beaded bag hanging down from it. In his right hand he holds an implement of some kind, perhaps with ceremonial significance. At his feet, there is a quiver of arrows.
TCI NotesAn interior photograph of a tribal man identified as Ed Chapman who is dressed in regalia, sitting in front of several Pendleton Blankets that are hanging down a wall. He is wearing a Horned Headdress with a single trail of Eagle feathers that are hanging down the left side of his body. This headdress is not being worn correctly. Probably an attempt by the photographer to make the image more visually interesting. In his left hand he is holding a Kup-luts, War Club. In his other hand he is holding a Pipe, hanging off the pipe is a bag with beadwork and on the fringe there is some Quillwork. There is a Bow that is strung up and is leaning between his legs to his left elbow. At his feet lying on the floor is a Quiver with five Arrows in the Quiver. On the outside of his left knee are three Arrows. There is a Pendleton Blanket on the floor that he is sitting on. In the background are four Pendleton Blankets hanging from the corners as part of the decoration. Behind them are Blankets that are folded up on the shelves. Presumably this is in the showroom of the Pendleton Woolen Mills.
