TitleThree Native American men spearing salmon on rapids of Columbia River. Prentiss photo
DescriptionBlack and white image of three Native American men fishing from rocks at Celilo Falls. All hold long poles or spears. Two are wearing caps, while one wears what looks like a knitted cap. Two of the men wear overalls; all have long sleeves and pants and wear shoes. In the middle ground of the photo are the falls, and two wooden structures, one of which may be a wooden fish wheel. Hills rise up in the background. The photo was taken before March, 1957, when the Dalles Dam began operation and covered the falls.
