Donald McKay


University of Oregon Library

Photograph by Lee Moorhouse. A man, identified as Donald McKay of the Cayuse tribe, sits on a small log in the woods on the bank of a narrow creek. Many of the branches that frame the photograph are bare, and the ground is littered with leaves. The man's hair is white or gray, and he has a long mustache. He wears European style clothing: a broad-brimmed felt hat, a dark cloth jacket with lapels trimmed in lighter cloth, a checked shirt with cloth cravat, jeans or cloth trousers, and boots. In his left hand he holds a curved walking cane. Behind and to his left are several broad planks of wood that reach like a bridge from the bank of the creek to about two-thirds across the water.
