See #HP020351/G-03768 described as “A collection of portraits of native people from different tribes.” This studio portrait is cropped and featured in this presentation poster attributed to Dally.
For textual materials that relate to Frederick Dally's 1866 tour of inspection with the colonial administration, in which Indigenous communities around Vancouver Island were visited, see file MS-2443.9 described as "Memoranda of a trip round Vancouver Island and Nootka Sound on board H.M.S. Scout, Captain Price A.D. 1866..12 pp." In many instances, outdated and derogatory terms and attitudes are present in this account by F. Dally to describe Indigenous people and communities. Part of MS-2443 described as Frederick Dally papers in the Frederick Dally fonds (PR-1380).
