Descriptive UO Title
TCI TitleChief Uma -Som-Kin Walla Walla Tribe
General NotesAn outside photograph of a Native American man, who has been identified as Uma-Som-Kin. He is dressed in full native regalia, and sitting on a horse that is standing next to a river's edge. 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 that exhibit a geometrical design on the cuff--perhaps beaded--and beaded moccasins. Because no stirrups can be seen, it would appear that he is riding either bareback or using a blanket for his saddle. He is holding the horse's bridle in his left hand. The horse or pony has a spotted coat. The river disappears around a bend, blending into the hillside in the background. The terrain around the river shows rocks, grass, dirt and brush. On the river's opposite bank is a fence line that runs along the river's path. In the far background is an expanse of rolling hills.
