Title

Native American students at Chemawa School

Description

Group portrait of Native American students who attended the Forest Grove Indian Training School and/or Chemawa School. Twelve girls and seven boys are present, all dressed in school-issued clothing. It may have been taken soon after the students enterered the school; several of the girls have shaved heads. The building in the background looks like one of the dormitory buildings on the Forest Grove campus, but the location is not certain. The photographer, Henry DeGroot, operated in Corvallis from 1884-1886.
