Indian Mother



We wrap up the week with this photograph of an Indian mother and child. The photograph was taken in 1905, in Oregon.

  3. Thank-you PJM for another week of fantastic pictures. I drive into work every day, sit down, fire up the computer and nothing happens until I see the old pic of the day. Have a good weekend all.

  4. I have always wondered why their hair looks so healthy and vibrant when compared to the average civilized person? Is it genetics or something else? Just a thought.Pictures such as these leave the viewer with so many unanswered questions! G'day.

  7. It has been a week of photos I have never seen of Indians. The women generally don't get the recognition they should since they were not wariors, etc. I think they did most of the daily work to sustain the tribe. They could be very harse to captives.

  8. This is positively breaktaking. She is a baby holding a baby, but you can see such purpose and poise in her young eyes. The photo looks almost like a painting. If only we knew her story.
