Rappahannock Representatives

Description

Councilor Robert H. Clarke (Rappahannock), Dorelix Amaf (Nanticoke), and Councilor James Johnson (Rappahannock), wearing feather headdresses, fringed hide shirts, and trade blankets, pose on a wooden plank walkway. The Rappahannocks likely were visiting Delaware for a Nanticoke powwow in 1925.

The photographer Frederick "Fred" Johnson (1904–1994), of Massachusetts, was a student of the famed anthropologist Frank G. Speck at the University of Pennsylvania. As an anthropologist, archaeologist, linguist, and photographer, he studied American Indians in the eastern United States and Canada.
