Virginia Indians in Delaware
Indians from Virginia (possibly Rappahannock tribal members), visiting the Nanticokes at Millsboro, Delaware, in 1927, pose on a wooden walkway in front of a wooden clapboard house with screened porch. They wear various fringed cloth pants, shirts, and dresses, some beaded and ribboned, as well as feather headdresses, hats, and necklaces.
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.
