General NotesAn outside photograph of two Native American men dressed in Pendleton blankets posing on the bank of a river in the wintertime. Both men have their hair in braids, with a single 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. He is bare-chested and wears his Pendleton blanket wrapped around his waist. One moccasin can be seen from under his blanket. 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. He is dressed with a Pendleton blanket over his left shoulder; there are pants or leggings under the blanket. On his back he has a quiver with hawk feathers. In the background lies the river, leading to a rising riverbank. There are leafless cottonwood trees on the other side of the river and patches of snow on the ground. In the far background is a gently rising hillside.
