Title

Umatilla students

Description

A group portrait of students from the Umatilla tribe at the Forest Grove Indian Training School. The caption notes that this was number 35 in a series of photographs by I.G. Davidson, a photography studio based in Portland. The photograph is one of several group portraits that depict "before and after" views of students at the school. These photographs show that the school dressed the students and taught them to behave according to the norms of white society. This photograph dates from the time period when Captain Wilkinson was in charge of the school. The students are probably those who arrived as a group from Umatilla lands in October 1881: Haley (or Hallay) George; Emma Winnum; Tina Lowry; Winnie Abrahams; Albert John; Charley Wilhelm; William Barnhart; Moses Price Minthorn; Hugh [Minthorn?]; and Roy Cook.
