Descriptive UO Title
TCI TitleThe Combat
General NotesAn outside photograph of two Native American men, one of whom appears to be bare-chested, attired with Pendleton blankets wrapped around their waists, posing on the bank of a river in the wintertime. Both men have their hair in braids with a feather attached. Each man is aiming a bow and arrow at the other. The photographer has identified the man on the left side of the photograph as Tilloquats; he is holding his bow in his left hand and one arrow, fitted into the bow, in his right hand. Hanging off his right arm is a whip. The photographer has identified the other man as Yee-Yee, and he is holding his bow in his left hand--fitting the arrow into his bow with his right. On his back he has a quiver with hawk feathers. Behind the men is the river, running the width of the photograph. In the background lies the rising riverbank, leading to the hillside. There are leafless cottonwood trees on the other side of the river and patches of snow on the ground.
