TCI TitleUmatilla Indian Girls 1904
General NotesThree Native American girls, of the Umatilla Tribe, are standing on top of the gate of a small wooden dam over a river. The young woman on the left has a pendleton blanket wrapped around herself. She is wearing a headdress with feathers and her hair is loosely tucked under the blanket. The young woman in the middle also has a pendleton blanket wrapped around herself. She has two long braids and is carrying a woven bag over one arm. The design on the bag is of a deer and two flowers. The young woman on the right is wearing a buckskin dress with a belt and a woven cornhusk hat. The dress has two tiers of beaded fringe. She has two arm band style bracelets on her wrist and forearm; the one on her forearm is copper. All three girls are wearing beaded moccasins. The dam spans an inlet between the bank and a sandbar. There is a pile of rocks on the sand on both sides of the dam. The background of the image shows more of the river, a wooden dock or platform, and some shrubs and deciduous trees.
TCI NotesOutside photograph of three women dressed in regalia standing on what appears to be a floodgate over the river. Two of the women have headdresses on, one is a cornhusk hat and the other is a horned fur hat with feathers stuck in the top in the backgroun
