Nez Perce Tepee, 1893

Description

Erskine Wood Photograph from Chief Joseph's Camp at Nespelem, WA, Colville Reservation, 1893.

"A long, or winter eneet (wigwam) on the riverbottom at Nespilem. This is probably the one I lived in with Chief Joseph and 4 or 5 other families" (EW, later note). See EW journal for November 24 and 25, 1893: ""At noon they started to move and they went down about half a mile where the squaws joined 4 or 5 tepees together and made a tepee like we had in the mountains. Joseph was at one end and Rose Bush at the other and 5 families down the sides." "After breakfast I went up the creek to the mill and got my camera and shot off the remai[ni]ng 3 fils then I loaded her up and went down to the tepees and got 12 fine pictures some of the tepees and most the others of squaws doing fine things."
