General NotesVictor William of the Cayuse tribe stands in front of a tipi, gazing slightly down and to his left. He wears a collarless cloth shirt and is wrapped in a geometrically-patterned blanket which hides all but his right shoulder and arm. His left arm pulls the blanket across his body so that it wraps around him thoroughly and no other details of costume or footgear can be seen. His long dark hair is unbound and is parted on the left side and pulled around to hang in front of his right shoulder. To his right stands a child, with bare legs and feet, and hair that is either short or pulled back. The child wears a knee-length dress. The child is holding a length of ribbon, lace, or some other gauzy material which trails on the ground; she smiles as she looks down at it in her hands. In the background of the photo a line of fenceposts behind the tipi leads off to the distance. Farther away across the flat land in the far distance is a line of mountains.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a man and girl standing in front of a tipi. He is wrapped in a wool blanket; on his left side the blanket is over his shoulder and under his right arm. The unidentified girl is wearing a dress looking down at a stick in her hand that is a blur from moving at the time of the photograph was taken. They are standing in front of a canvas tipi and on the bottom of the tipi there are Tule Mats that are in between the tipi and the poles. In the background are a fence line and some foot hills. Writing on the photograph is "Victor William Cayuse Tribe" above that is "Major Moorhouse"
