General NotesA Native American man identified as Jim Guyer sits on a blanket-covered object. He wears a feather headress with a wide, decorated cloth band. Attached to the headress is a trailor that is decorated with feathers. He wears a decorated cloth vest, wool leggings, a breechcloth with geometric decorations, ankle bells, and decorated moccasins. He holds a feathered dance stick in his hands.
TCI NotesAn interior photograph of a man dressed in his regalia sitting inside of a tipi. He is looking the same way his body is facing. He is wearing a stovepipe bonnet with a single trail down the back. This has been moved over his shoulder to show more of the trail. Also a brass tack vest, cloth shirt, arm bands with an ermine hanging off of the arm band, wool legging, with bells around his ankles. In his hands he is holding a dancing stick with some Eagle feathers on the stick. He is sitting on an unidentified object that is covered with a blanket. There is another blanket that is in front of him on the ground. That has been spread out to show the design of the two stripes of diamonds. There are about four or five different rugs under him covering the ground. In the background is the tipi with only two poles showing; they are just behind him, the canvas is all across the photograph. Writing on the photograph is "Major Moorhouse" which is on the blanket in back of him. The words "Jim Guyer, Umatilla Tribe" is written just above his left foot. This photograph is the same as PH036_4202 with a few changes to the regalia and the blanket.
