Yet another papoose image by Benjamin Markham of The Dalles, this view shows a laughing baby in a wonderfully detailed cradle board. The word "papoose", now part of the English language and used to refer to children of all native tribes, came originally from an Algonquian word, "papoos", meaning "child". -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
