General NotesAn outside photograph of a Native American man and young girl standing in front of a tule mat tipi in the snow in winter. The man has been identified as Paul Showaway. He is wearing a shirt over which is wrapped a Pendleton blanket which extends to the ground. He is also wearing a choker and a fur bandoleer. Hanging from the bandoleer are decorative materials, identified as ermines and hair. The young girl is wearing a wingdress with a decorative belt. She has her hair braided and is wearing three loop necklaces. She is standing to the man's right side and is holding a cornhusk bag in her right hand. The tipi has several tule mats wrapped and layered over inner poles. There is a door behind the man, made from canvas and a blanket. Leaning against the tipi are three tall, rough-hewn poles, a short cottonwood log, and a homemade ladder. There is a blanket hanging outside to the right of the tipi. In the background are deciduous trees and a telephone pole.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a man and a young girl standing in front of a Tule Mat Tipi in the snow in the winter. He has been identified as Paul Showaway. He is wrapped in a Pendleton Blanket and he is wearing a Fur Bandoleer with hair and ermines hanging from the bandoleer. In his left hand he is holding what looks like a hawk tail fan; he was moving when the photograph was taken, so it is a blur. The unidentified girl is dressed in a Wingdress. She is holding a cornhusk bag and she is standing next to the right of the man. The Tule Mat Tipi has a number of mats wrapped around the poles. The door is just behind the man and it is made of canvas and blanket. On the left side of the door there are three poles and a Cottonwood log leaning on the tipi. On the other side is a homemade ladder going up about three-fourths of the way up the tipi. To the right of the tipi is a Pendleton Blanket hanging on a pole. Behind the tipi on the right side of the photograph is a telephone pole. Writing on the photograph is "Paul Show-o-way and Daughter ThornHollow- 1901 Maj. Moorhouse" and the bottom left corner of the photograph are the numbers "4259."
