General NotesTwo young Native American girls are sitting on the bank of a pond or stream. The location is identified as being near Cayuse Station. The older girl is holding the younger girl in front of her. Only her head, her braids, the collar and shoulders of her cloth dress, and the bottom of one moccasin are visible. The younger child is wrapped in a small blanket or shawl, has a beaded necklace, with a beaded flap or sleeve from her dress visible on one arm. There is a clear bucket or large jar placed next to the girls, with an unidentified object in it. The bank where the girls are sitting is a flat clearing, covered with gravel and rocks, that meets the edge of the water. There is an area on the other side of the water that is also covered with rocks, but is steep, not flat. The rest of the embankment, on both sides of the water, is covered with shrubs and trees.
