This portrait was likely taken in 1887 during a meeting between the Indian Agent and members of several tribes. During this meeting, the Spokane tribe agreed to give up all lands outside the reservation and move to the Coeur d’Alene reservation. Chief Spokane Garry is pictured third from the left in the middle row; his daughter, Nellie, is on the left in the front row.
