Sepia Saturday 116: Hair

This week's Sepia Saturday theme is hair.  I went back to that email that Barb K. sent me of many sepia photos, and found this one of some Native American women with windblown hair.  The photo was taken in 1891 by John C.H. Grabill, and is stamped with a link to Top Design Magazine.  To see more sepia photos of hair, check out what my friends are posting this week over at Sepia Saturday.

I made this post short and sweet, because I posted a super long one this week too.  That one is my attempt at some storytelling using the memories of my grandparents little store near Junction City, Oregon.  Here is the link to that post, and I would really love your feedback on it:  Memories of The Riverview Market in Riverview, Oregon.

I also made a post about  Vintage San Antonio Postcards this week that may be of interest.  (I didn't want to hog more Sepia Saturday link space.)

Neat photo- I wonder how the women handled carrying their children on their backs like that all day.

1891 - this must be one of the oldest photos this week. Just where is/was Lokota?

Wendy said...

Great photo with such interesting details ~

Joy said...

Fascinating photo, I like that all the blankets are different. AND of course the bare-backed horse.

barbara and nancy said...

what an interesting photo.The women don't look too happy. and they also look really, really cold.

Bob, the Sioux Nation has several diff. language groups. Lakota is one of them. Traditional Sioux lands are in North Dakota and surrounding areas. Two of their reservations are Rosebud and Pine Ridge.

I used to carry my kids on my back sometimes, not all day but it sure made getting chores done easier than trying to carry them on one arm.

Rob From Amersfoort said...

Fascinating photo! I wish we knew more about these women.

This is indeed a very interesting photo. My hubby has some Cherokee Indian blood in his ancestry but we do not have any photos. I wish I did have some. I continue to keep looking.

Little Nell said...

I’d like to know what they’re thinking.

Karen S. said...

Very nice post, I've read about the Lakota before and as everything was back in the day, quite an interesting life it was.

Postcardy said...

It must have been both windy and chilly since the women are all wrapped in blankets.

Jo Graham (images past) said...

Very interesting photo - they look rather cold though. Love the blankets and the woman on the horse :-) Jo
