Title on EnvelopeRed Elk and sister, Cayuse tribe, by tipi
Descriptive UO Title
General NotesA Native American man and woman, identified as Red Elk and his sister, of the Cayuse Tribe, stand in front of a large tipi. The tipi is made up of layers of tule mats, with some long sticks supporting them on the outside. The man is dressed in a cloth shirt and cloth pants, with a plaid, fringed breechcloth. He is wearing beaded moccasins, a beaded bandoleer, and a beaded belt with a small pouch. His jewelry includes beaded looped necklaces, a beaded choker, and hoop earrings with shells. He is holding an object in each hand. The woman is dressed in a solid colored cloth dress, an underlayer dress, and has a sash around her waist. She has a large shawl draped over one shoulder and wrapped around her waist. The shawl has fringes and some embroidered flowers along the border. She is wearing moccasins, partially obscured by her shadow, and is holding a scarf or bandana in her hand. Her jewelry includes several strands of beaded necklaces and shell earrings. The man's hair is long and pulled back behind his head. The woman's hair is in two long ponytails. The man and woman are each standing on a pendleton blanket. Two more blankets are draped over a rope that circles the the tipi; one of them seems to be covering a doorway. A few objects are displayed on the blankets. There are deciduous trees and shrubs in the background and straw on the ground around the tipi.
