General NotesA group of men and women identified as employees of the Umatilla Indian School, are posing in front of a wooden building, possibly the schoolhouse. Two storeys of the building are visible, with two windows seen on each storey. Some of women and one of the men are seated on the ground in front of the other people who are standing. The men all wear hats and all but one wear European American suits. The man on the far left of the image is dressed in what appears to be a Chinese laborer's outfit of the period; he appears to be Chinese. The women all wear European American clothing of the period (long skirts and long-sleeved blouses with high-necked collars.) All the women wear their hear pulled up off their necks.
