Photographic portrait of a Yakima Indian papoose, ca.1900. The papoose is snuggly fitted into his or her papoose basket and strapped to a carryall or cradle. The carryall has a built-in sunshade to protect the infant's face. The sunshade, flipped upwards, reveals the flowery design on it. The carryall is placed in an upright position against some grass-covered rocks somewhere outdoors. Picture file card reads: "a queen."; "Sahaptian-speaking Indian tribe that lived along the Columbia, Yakima, and Wenatchee rivers in south-central Washington. They were members of the Plateau culture area and were primarily salmon fishers. Although culturally much like other Sahaptin Indians of the Plateau, the Yakima acquired historical distinction in the Yakima Indian Wars (1855-58), a failed attempt by the Indians to resist U.S. forces intent upon clearing the Washington Territory for white prospectors and settlers." -- Encyclopedia Britannica.
