TCI TitleJoe Bennett Walla Walla Tribe
General NotesAn outside photograph of a Native American man posing in regalia in front of a tule mat tipi. The man has been identified as Joe Bennett. His hair is braided and he is wearing a headband of bear claws with a single eagle feather on the right side of his head. He wears a choker around his neck and a loop necklace that hangs over his shirt. He is dressed in a buckskin coat with decorative fringe around his shoulders, collar and side seams. He is carrying two coyote pelts over his right arm, and in his left hand is a hatchet-style pipe that has feathers attached to the stem. At his waist is a belt that may be made of fur or animal hide; on the belt is a beaded scabbard with a square, wooden knife handle visible from the scabbard opening. Under his jacket is a Pendleton blanket that covers his legs down to his moccasins. In the background is a tule mat tipi; there is a cloth or canvas doorway behind the man. There are two poles--one on each side of the doorway--leaning against the tipi to hold down the mats. A large pole or wood log is lying on the ground against the tipi.
