A black-and-white photograph of a Native American man, identified as Alexander, Yakima Indian. He is sitting on a blanket-covered object on a carpet strewn with straw. Behind him on the left is a light-colored broad-brimmed felt hat with a feather in the hatband. His hair is pulled back from his face on the top of his head, and hangs down in two pigtails on his chest which are wrapped with dark fur hairwraps. A small amount of hair on each side is threaded through quills and beads and hangs separately. He wears disk earrings and a beaded choker. His heavy dark cloth shirt has two buttons on the placket, which only extends halfway down the shirt. There is a button on each cuff as well. Above his elbows he wears wide beaded armbands with geometric designs. His light-colored leggings have designs in brass tacks below the knees, and insets of woven material with geometric designs which run the length of the front. Fringes, ermines, and braids hang off them. His moccasins are beaded with a floral pattern. His hands on his lap hold a hatchet-style pipe which has a triangular woven and fringed decoration on the end. Small bells hang amongst the fringe, which is so long that a half of it rests on the floor. Around his waist he wears a woven or beaded belt with squares of color. From it hangs a split leather belt with brass tacks, which forms two loops.
