TCI TitleChief Red Hawk Cayuse Tribe
General NotesA Native American man, identified as Chief Red Hawk of the Cayuse Tribe, is seated in front of a solid colored blanket that is suspended like a backdrop. The man is wearing a cloth shirt and has a Pendleton blanket wrapped around his body from the chest down. He has long hair, some of which is tied in a scarf that drapes over his shoulder. He is wearing a beaded choker and beaded bracelets. In his lap, one hand is holding a bow and two arrows and a pipe with a long, flat, wooden handle. His other hand is holding up a war club, which is adorned with feathers. A cowboy hat with a braided or twisted scarf hat band is hung on the backdrop. The image appears to be an outside photograph, as there is some vegetation visible in the bottom corners.
