Notes with the original photo indicate that this encampment at Celilo was used by members of the Yakima tribe during the salmon fishing season at Celilo Falls. After fishing season, they returned to more permanent homes on the Yakima Reservation in Washington. This view was created by Dorothea Lange in October, 1939, as part of a series of photos she produced of Oregon at the end of the Depression. Sponsored by the Farm Security Administration, most of her views were of migrant workers and farming activities. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
