Apsaroke Mother



Today's picture was taken in 1908. It is another portrait by Edward Curtis. The photograph shows an Apsaroke  mother and child.

  1. Cute kid. Is it me or does he look like he's thinking... "Get me the heck outa this thing". Mom seems happy she won't have to chase after him anytime soon.

  2. I find it so sad that many photographers did not take the time to find out the name of the person whose picture they were taking...

  3. The wrap for the baby may be an early form of the bundeling mothers are encouraged to do today. It is said (by my daughters) that wrapping the baby tightly makes it more settled because it resembles the conditions found in the womb. I suspect that the indian baby wraps had more to do with moving the baby safely since many tribes were moving frequently in search of game, etc.

  5. The scarf caught my eye. It appears to be silk or satin. Very nice photo I have never seen before.
