General NotesAn outside photograph of a Native American woman who has been identified as Rosa Paul. She is standing on a Pendleton blanket, in front of an unadorned blanket backdrop hanging from a wooden frame. The woman is turned from the camera so that only her left profile and attire can be seen. She is dressed in a buckskin dress with multiple layers of fringe, starting at her shoulder and ending at her dress hem. There are various sizes of beads hanging off the fringe. She is wearing bracelets on her left arm. On her head is a cornhusk hat with a "v-styled" geometric design. Her hair is braided and she wears large, circle-shaped earrings. She is wearing moccasins. On her back she is carrying a baby in a cradleboard with elaborate beadwork in a floral design at the top. The bottom of the cradleboard is buckskin that is laced down the middle. There is fringe dividing the cradleboard top and bottom, with beads on some of the fringe.
