“Clad in her deerskin dress of the plains and her basketry hat of the coast, the girl pauses on the grim lava rocks above the Dalles, looking out across the thundering rapids, perhaps observing the activities after friends in the village Wasko.” – Edward Curtis

As far as the Oregon coast, the practical construction of the prairie tribes is once again found incorporated into the dress of the Wishham.
