Title on ObjectIndian camps, Umatilla Indian Reservation, July, 4, 1902
TCI TitleUmatilla Reservation July 4, 1902
General NotesA view of a Native American encampment on the Umatilla Indian Reservation, taken July 4, 1902. Two rows of tipis, most made of canvas, are set up on a field covered with grass and low bushes. The area around the tipis is enclosed with a fence, which is visible in the foreground. Behind them is a dense wood. Low mountains are in the background. The figures of horses and people can be seen amongst the tipis, along with one or two wagons. There is another group of animals within the enclosure, standing away from the groups of horses, that might be two sheep grazing together. At the extreme left of the photo is a covered shelter or some type of open wooden structure.
