Title on ObjectIndian camps, Umatilla Indian Reservation, July, 4, 1902
General NotesA view of a Native American encampment on the Umatilla Indian Reservation, taken July 4, 1902. About 20 tipis are set up in a line along a low rise of ground. There seems to be water in a little wash behind them, and a river in the background, with low bluffs rising up from it. To the right of the photo are some trees, and in the foreground several discarded cans. A small dog or cat ambles in front of the second tipi from the left; a pair of grazing horses and a person can be seen at the right. There appears to be some sort of vehicle or equipment near the small tipi in the center of the image. The ground is covered with grass and low shrubs, and low clouds are scudding across the sky.
