This older woman is wearing a traditional woven basket hat as well as a dentalium placed through a piercing in the septum of her nose. While it looks like a small tusk or tooth, the dentalium is actually a long thin seashell. Curtis included this and other Wishram images in his monumental work, "The Indians of North America".
