Edna Kash-kash, Cayuse tribe - Moorhouse

One of a large number of portraits taken by Major Lee Moorhouse at the Umatilla Reservation, this photo of Edna Kash-kash shows her in front of her reed-mat tepee. While identified by the Library of Congress as Yakima or Umatilla, her dress appears to be Cayuse, another tribe that was relocated to the Umatilla Reservation.
