Descriptive UO Title
TCI TitleSquaw Man & Family
General NotesA white man and his four children, who appear to all be girls, stand in front of a tipi on a prairie. The site has been identified as being on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. The man wears cloth work pants with suspenders, a long-sleeved cloth shirt, shoes, and a brimmed hat. A pipe is in his mouth. He is holding the hand of his smallest child, who appears to be dressed in a long-sleeved white cloth frock with smocking and a flat white hat. The two oldest daughters wear long-sleeved darker cloth dresses that come halfway down their calves, and hats with large flat brims. The fourth girl appears to be wearing an apron with a starched collar over a white cloth dress, and is not wearing a hat. All girls wear shoes or boots and socks. The three oldest girls are holding each other's hands. Behind them stands a canvas tipi supported by poles, with its entrance fastened back to show piles of bedding within. Behind the man, on the left of the photograph, is a stack of split firewood and a couple of wooden boxes. Nearby stands an object that appears to be a washer and wringer for laundry. There also seems to be a flat wooden box on the opposite side of the tipi.
