General NotesA Native American woman, identified as Sabina Minthorn from the Cayuse Tribe, appears to be sitting in front of a backdrop. She faces the photographer with her hands partly crossed in front of her in her lap, which is where the photo cuts off. Her two long dark braids are tucked into the front of her belt, which has a geometric figure in the middle. She wears a choker necklace and has bracelets on both arms and rings on both hands. The top of her dress has squares of geometric beading, and its sleeves end in fringes. She wears a cloth shirt, or, possibly, underdress, underneath her leather dress. The old style deer tail dress is a dress that has a deer tail on the front and sometimes the back of a dress with beadwork around the tail. As in this photograph its tail is under her chin.
