He is wearing a cowboy or Spanish-styled hat with a decorated cloth hatband. Around his neck is a fur scarf, he wears a decorated cloth jacket, decorated cloth arm band, and holds a long cloth object decorated with fur and appliqued footprints draped over his right arm. His horse is wearing a high-cantled stock saddle, a plain curb bridle, and has a long fur draped across his shoulders. In the near background are two tipis. The tipi on the right has the inside partially visible, showing three pails, a pile of blankets, and a box.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a man in his regalia sitting on his horse in a camp site. He has been identified as No-Shirt and he is wearing a fur bandoleer around his shoulder and one over his right arm hanging down the side of the horse. He is wearing a hat with a fur hatband and in the front of the hatband is a single Eagle feather. There is a unidentified fur pelt hanging from the saddle horn. He is sitting on a saddle with three saddle blankets. They are in front of one of three canvas tipis. The tipi on the right of the photograph has the bottom of the tipi rolled up about two or three feet high and tied to a tipi pole with a rope. You can see part of the things inside the tipi from pots, a box, blanket, and possibly a stove. On the left side of the photograph is the back of two tipis. Writing on the photograph just under the horse is "Chief No Shirt Walla Walla Tribe Maj. Moorhouse."
