Portrait of Jacob Helm, Piute man


Portrait of Jacob Helm, a member of the Piute tribe from the Yakima Agency. He entered the Forest Grove Indian Training School in April, 1883 and graduated from Chemawa School in 1885. He is wearing a small lapel pin possibly spelling 'OV' or 'OA.' Based on his age and the dates of activity of the photographer, a woman named Myra E. Sperry, this photograph was probably taken around 1889-1891.
