General NotesA Native American woman, identified as Rosa Parr of the Walla Walla Tribe, is seated on a chair in front of a blanket backdrop. The woman is dressed in a buckskin dress with fringes and beadwork. She is wearing beaded moccasins and a woven cornhusk hat. Her hair is long and divided into two tresses that are either partially braided or tied. Her jewelry includes a beaded choker and bracelet, several copper bracelets, and two rings. She is holding on her lap an unidentified wooden handled tool or implement, with leather straps attached to the base of the handle. The chair she is seated on and the ground under her feet are covered by a Pendleton blanket. The blanket backdrop appears to be suspended by a wooden structural frame and there is some white cloth visible on the sides of the frame, overlapping the blanket. The backdrop is placed in a grassy area next to a wooden plank walkway. Some tall trees and a fence are visible in the background.
