General NotesAn outdoor photograph of a Native American woman identified as Rosa Paul. Her back is to the camera; she is facing a frame-hung blanket backdrop, and standing on a Pendleton blanket. She has braided hair and is wearing a cornhusk hat with geometric designs. Her dress is buckskin, with extensive beading on the top and around her waist. The end of her right sleeve and bottom of her dress is fringed. She appears to be holding a bag in front of her. On her back she is carrying a baby in a cradleboard. The cradleboard exhibits a wooden, stick-type, circular top frame, with the bottom half covered in two-tone leather that is laced down the middle. In the background is a building; part of a stairway is visable to the left of the backdrop.
