Title on Object
Title on EnvelopeBishop Charles J. O'Reilly leading prayer service at Umatilla Indian Reservation, June, 1907
General NotesAn outside photograph of a large group of men, women and children kneeling as they observe a procession under a small canopy. The ends of the canopy are carried by four Native American men. Under the canopy are four European-American people--two men and two boys. One of the men is a priest, dressed in Catholic clerical garb. The other man has his torso wrapped in a white blanket or cape. The two boys are also dressed in religious garb. In the middle of the photograph is a band, with a drum and tuba or other large brass instrument. The band members are boys and men dressed in long, dark robes. One of the adult band members is wearing a crucifix. The adult band members apear to be European-American, while the boy band members are primarily Native American. The women to the right of the photograph are dressed in European-American clothing. There are two women behind the procession dressed entirely in white. Several of the women have their hands clasped and their heads tilted downward, as if in contemplation or prayer. Behind the wooden fence are numerous trees and a gently rising hillside.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a member of the church standing under a small canopy being carried by four tribal members. There are a number of other people on their knees watching the priest and the canopy proceeding in front of them. There is a band in the middle of the photograph also on their knees with their instruments. Just behind the row of people is a small wooden fence then a small row of trees and brush, which looks like a small creek bed. In the far background is an open ridge top.
