Photographic portrait of Ramona, a Cahuilla Indian, at her new home a year after the murder of her husband Alessandro by Sam Temple, ca. 1885. The Indian woman is seated outside the house at center. She is wearing a white blouse and patterned skirt. The house is a very simple wooden structure with a single open doorway and a pipe protruding from the roof to act as a chimney. A small area around the house has been cleared of brush, but outside of this circle, the ground is covered in small desert shrubs. There is another building visible at right, and a large moutain is in the background at right. Ramona was an Indian upon whom Helen Hunt Jackson's novel Ramona is based.
