The clothes worn by this young girl appear to be her own, as evidenced by their stains and her toe peeking through one moccasin. Edward Curtis, the photographer, sometimes dressed his subjects in borrowed costumes, and sometime photographed them in their contemporary clothes. The Umatilla tribe, to which this girl belonged, traditionally ranged the Columbia Plateau in the Pacific Northwest. By the time this photo was taken, they had been placed on the Umatilla Reservation near Pendleton. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
