TCI TitleChief Uma-Som-kin Walla Walla Tribe
General NotesAn outside photograph of a Native American man identified as Uma-Som-Kin. He is dressed in full regalia and sitting on a horse, next to a river. For his headdress, the man is wearing a bonnet with a single trail of eagle feathers. He is wearing a coat made out of a Pendleton blanket. He is wearing leggings with a design on the cuff and beaded moccasins. Because no stirrups can be seen, it would appear that he is riding either bareback or using a blanket for a saddle. He is holding the horse's bridle in both hands. The horse has a spotted coat. Across the river, on the opposite bank, are two cottonwood trees. In the background are rolling hills.
