General NotesA Native American woman, identified as Wo-Ho-Pum, is standing and facing the side of a cloth tipi. A Pendleton blanket is attached to the tipi and hangs down to the ground. There are several bags displayed on the blanket, woven and beaded. Some of the woven ones have geometic patterns; one beaded one has a woman and girl design. The woman is wearing a full-length beaded and fringed buckskin dress and a woven hat. A baby in a cradleboard is strapped to her back. The child's head is hooded and the face only visible from the side. Most of the cradleboard is wrapped in a cotton cloth, with some beads or looped necklaces across the front of the child. The woman is holding another woven bag in her hand. The background beyond the tent is a stand of shrubby, deciduous trees and open sky.
