General NotesA Native American man, identified as Sequyene of the Walla Walla tribe, stands next to a horse. The man and horse are seen in profile. The man is wearing a feathered headdress that reaches to the ground and has a horn coming out of the side. He is wearing dark colored robes with a striped wool scarf hanging down the front from the waist. He is holding a staff that is wrapped with cloth or leather and has feathers hanging down its length. A large tassel hangs down to the ground from where the man holds the spear. The horse is wearing a bridle, martingale, and a saddle blanket. The breastplate is decorated with repeating geometric patterns, bells, and fringe at the bottom of the sidepieces. The saddle blanket is made from cloth and an animal skin. The skin's edge is decorated with round metallic looking beads or rivets that may attach it to the cloth.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a man dressed in his regalia standing in front of a horse. The man is wearing a single trail bonnet with horns on the bonnet. He is wearing a blanket around his shoulders which cover most of his body. In his right hand are an Eagle feather staff and a beaded bag with long fringe. The horse is wearing feathers on its forehead, beaded martingale with a geometric design, and on the back of the horse is a saddle blanket with a hide possibly a cougar attached to the blanket. In the background behind the horse is a canvas tipi with door open. Behind the man in the background is a wagon. This is the same photograph as PH036_4161, the only different is Moorhouse moved the camera to the left to see more of the trees on left side of the image.
