Nez Perce Sweat House, 1893

Description

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

"This is a sweat house. It hasn't been used today as you see there is snow on it. The creek runs right by it and when the Indians come out of the sweat house they go into the cold water. They put blankets over the door to keep the steam in. They make the steam by pouring water on hot rocks. This house will hold 4 men and a boy. The Indians and I took a bath in it almost every morning that we were camped there" (EW, 1893). This image published with OHQ journal transcript.
