TCI Title
General NotesElderly Native American male is posed outside in front of a studio back drop (wooden framed and matted). He is standing on a small round braided mat. He is dressed in tribal costume and regalia. He has a headdress made of paper, beads and grasses and is wearing a necklace of bones, shells and grasses. He is wearing either bone or shell earring on his left ear. He is wearing feather tail plume of hawk feathers and a lower plume of eagle feathers. They are wrapped around him using leather belts; one of the belts is beaded. He is wearing leather leggings/chaps and mocassins. Beyond the photo prop area, there are decidious trees in full leaf, a fence and a boardwalk.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of an unidentified man in regalia in front of a blanket backdrop. He is wearing an unidentified headdress, necklace, hairbone and bandoleer which is worn wrong. He has it as a necklace when it should be worn around over one of his shoulders. He is wearing an old style bustle that is not put together right. The two spikes, which are the longest ones that are hanging down, should be in an upright position. He is standing on a coiled cedar mat that is in front of a blanket backdrop that is tacked up to a wooden frame. In the left side of the photograph is a wooden walkway and trees in the background.
