General NotesA Native American woman, possibly misidentified as Rosa Paul of the Cayuse or Walla tribe, stands in front of a tipi, facing the left side of the picture. She is wearing a basket hat and a long fringed dress decorated across the shoulders with geometric designs. At her left side is a woven bag decorated with a stylized tree and birds. On her back is a cradleboard wrapped in a piece of spotted cloth. Behind Rosa Paul is a gate or fence made of brush and poles. In the foreground is a broom. The tipi is tall and made of poles leaned together like a tipi. It is covered with woven mats. The doorway is covered by a piece of cloth. Much of what she is wearing are photographer's props.

Writing on the photograph is under the tipi and the woman "Rosa Paul Cayuse Tribe Major Moorhouse."
