Umatilla maid, 1905. Curtis Caption: "Two distinct cultural areas are represented in the costume of this damsel. The familiar beadworked, deerskin dress is an acquisition from the plains culture, while the basketry hat and the shell-bead necklace hail from the pacific slope. Note the skin of the deer's tail fastened in front at the collar, as an aid in removing the garment."
