This striking portrait in profile of a young Wishram woman was copyrighted by Edward S. Curtis in 1910, and included in his classic work "The North American Indian". The Wishram and Wasco tribes are two Chinook peoples who lived across the river from each other at The Dalles - the Wishram on the northern side of the Columbia River. Both tribes are known for their intricate wood-carving, beadwork and basketry - the evidence of which can be seen in the necklaces worn by this young woman. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
