Unidentified Native American girl


A portrait of an unidentified Native American girl. She may be a daughter of alumni of the Forest Grove Indian School, or she may have been attending Chemawa Indian School in Salem. The photograph is a small, 85mm x 185mm image in carte-de-visite format. It is stamped on the verso of the photograph as having been taken by W. P. Johnson, and probably dates from between 1886-1888 (See: Robinson, Oregon Photographers, 1993, p. 394).
