A black-and-white photograph. The inscription in white ink at the bottom says 'Maj. Moorhouse and Wards' Umatilla Reservation. The number 5054 is written in the bottom left corner of the photo. Major Lee Moorhouse and two Native American children are seen in front of a tule-mat-and-canvas tipi. A wooden ladder leans against the right side of the tipi, along with some wooden poles. A striped blanket has been placed on the ground in front of the tipi, partly propped up by some unseen object, and two small children are on the blanket. The girl, who wears a scarf tied over her head, is sitting on the left side. She seems to be wearing a cloth shawl over a cloth dress. Standing to the right of her, next to Maj. Moorhouse, is a young boy, who appears to be wearing overalls topped with a dark cloth jacket missing all but the top button. His shoulder-length hair is cut in bangs. He wears European-style shoes or boots. Next to him squats the major in profile to the camera. His left hand is closest to the camera, and in it he holds the carcasse or hide of a small furry animal. The major wears a light-colored felt hat, a high-collar white shirt with a gingham patterned cravat, a vest, and striped wool trousers tucked into boots. He wears a buckskin jacket which is fringed at the seams and along the bottom and faced with fur. The front of the open jacket is also decorated with beadwork using floral motifs. Aside from a moustache, the major is clean-shaven. He is looking down towards the little boy. On the blanket in front of the children lies a semi-cylindrical basket with a geometric pattern woven in dark colors on a light background; the basket appears to have straps.

"A black-and-white photograph identified as Moorhouse home, Pendleton, with family group in front. Eleven people sit or stand around the entrance to a light-colored wooden house. The house has gingerbread-style trim, with a lacy crest interrupted by finials running around the top of its small flat porch roof and the edge of the roof line, and delicate crenelation along the roof ridge with a finial at the gable above the porch. More gingerbread ornaments the gable. A leafy vine obscures the right side of the house and climbs up the porch past a birdcage; other leafy plants are near the porch and in the foreground of the photo, and a strip of netting has been strung on both sides of the porch front as guides for more vines. A boardwalk has been laid through the lawn to the porch. Two women sit on chairs on the porch. One wears a white shirt and darker long skirt and has some light-colored ornament in her hair. The other woman is all in white and sits in a rocking chair. There is no balustrade to the porch, and along its edge sit a man and woman. The man wears a three-piece suit and bow tie, and the woman is in a white shirt and dark skirt. Like the other women, she wears her hair in a pompadour. She sits with her feet on the boardwalk. Left of her a man with a moustache, wearing a suit, sits in a rocking chair on the grass, holding a young girl on his lap. The girl wears a white dress and stockings and dark shoes. Near their feet, sitting on the boardwalk, are two boys. The boy closest to the house wears dark shorts with suspenders and a white shirt; his legs and feet are bare. The boy next to him is in a dark sailor-suit-style polka-dotted shirt and dark shorts, with dark stockings and shoes. At the right side of the photograph is a group of three people. Major Moorhouse and his wife sit in wooden rocking chairs, while another man in a three-piece suit and bowler hat stands between them in the background. The Major also wears a suit; his wife is in a long dark dress with ruffles at the hem, and has a long chain ornamenting her ensemble. Only two people are not looking directly at the camera; the man sitting on the porch edge, and the woman in white on the porch. Behind her gleam glass windows, with lacy curtains and light blinds behind them; above the screen door is the house number 601."
"A black-and white photograph identified as Moorhouse residence, Pendleton. Seven adults stand on the front porch of the home, posed for a portrait with a baby who is perched on a pillow on the railing of the porch, next to one of its two columns. The baby is being supported by one of the men. There is some snow on the ground. The men wear hats and suits. Several of the women wear white blouses and long dark skirts; a couple others wear long dark dresses. The baby is all in white. The house is neo-Dutch Colonial in style. The clapboard walls of its lower story are painted white while the shingled second and third stories are a darker shade. Curtains can be seen behind the glass windows. In the foreground of the photograph is the wooden framework of a fence, filled in with chicken wire. Tall trees stand behind the fence, and they are nearly bare of leaves, giving a good view of two dormer windows on the second floor and a brick chimney at the right side of the roof. The porch and first floor are approached by a short wooden stair with white wooden railings. The house sits on a foundation of stones lined with white morter. In the background at the right of the photo can be seen a fence railing and behind it another light-colored wooden frame house with lacy details on the porch columns."
A balck-and-white photograph of three men. The inscription at the bottom in white ink reads Yakima Chief Saponowox and sons. No. 354. Moorhouse. Chief Saponowox sits between the two younger men, who are standing. The chief wears a broad-brimmed felt hat with a feather standing upright at the front of the hatband. More feathers hang down from the back of the hat. His arms are crossed on his lap; with his right hand he holds a feather up to the left side of his face. His long unbound hair hangs over his chest. He is wearing a white cloth under-shirt and appears to also be wearing a dark one; over all is a dark cloth shirt or jacket. What looks like a rabbit's foot hangs from a thong around his neck. His legs are covered by a patterned blanket but he appears to be wearing pants or leggings and to be barefoot or just wearing socks. The man on the left of the photo wears a furred and feathered hat. His long unbound hair hangs nearly to his waist. He appears to be wearing a choker of white beads or shells around his neck. A short bandoleer which appears to have the furry paw of a small animal attached, and a necklace with ermine and other ornaments, are hung over his dark cloth smock-like shirt, which has a lighter pattern in it which resembles snowflakes. It looks as though his left arm is missing, but it may be behind his back; in his right hand he holds at waist-level a stick from which eagle feathers depend. His cloth leggings are partly obscured by an apron of fringed tartan which hangs from below his smock to halfway below his knees. He appears to be wearing moccasins or dark socks. The man on the right has his hair pulled back from his forehead. He stands with his arms crossed underneath a long feather stole. White feathers hang from the end of the stole. Eagle feathers frame his face, and he has a large eagle feather tucked under his left arm. He wears a striped shirt and has a patterned blanket falling from his waist to the ground, hiding his legs and feet. The men appear to be standing on a carpet which has been covered with straw or some typed of dried vegetation.
