Tsimishian family

ca. 1910

Sir Henry Wellcome photographed this Tsimishian family at home in Metlakahtla, Alaska, around 1910. A small group of Tsimishian Indians, following Anglican missionary William Duncan, left Metlakahtla, British Columbia, settled on Annette Island, the only Indian Reservation in Alaska, and established Metlakahtla, Alaska.
