Title on EnvelopeThe Cayuse Twins, in cradles, crying
Descriptive UO Title
General NotesTwo crying babies swaddled in cradleboards are leaned up against a wooden lattice fence. Vine leaves and flowers, some dead, hang over and through the lattice. The cradleboards are simple in style; each has a hoop that rises above the children's' heads, and two strings of beads hang from the central area of both hoops. On top of their clothing each is wrapped in a dark blanket and then a striped blanket; the striped blankets are laced up the front to keep the child in the cradleboard. Both wear mocassins.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of two babies in cradle boards leaning on a wall. They are both wrapped in a blanket in the cradle boards, the hoop on both of the boards is above the babies heads. Both of the babies are crying, the one on the left has its eyes ope
