Unidentified Native American girl


Unidentified Native American girl


A portrait of an unidentified Native American girl. She probably attended Chemawa School and/or the Indian Training School at Forest Grove. The photograph is a small, 85mm x 185mm image in carte-de-visite format. Although the photographer is not identified on the photograph, it matches other carte-de-visite photographs in this collection by W. P. Johnson of Salem that are dated. It was probably taken between 1886-1888 (Robinson, Oregon Photographers, 1993, p. 394).
