Peter Kalama and family


A portrait of Peter Kalama, a former student of the Forest Grove Indian Training School, with his family. Peter was of Nisqually and Native Hawaiian ancestry. The woman is most likely his first wife, Lillie Pitt, a Warm Springs woman who also graduated from the Forest Grove Indian School. This photograph was probably taken on the Warm Springs Reservation, where the Kalama Family lived for many years. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph states that this photograph was given by the estate of Charles L. Walker to Pacific University in 1949. Charles L. Walker was the son of Samuel A. T. Walker, the shoemaking instructor at the Forest Grove Indian School in the early 1880s.
