The photo shows an exhibit of four families of Penobscot Indians living in their birch-bark wigwams (or tee-pees). The Penobscot Indians used birch-bark canoes to paddle the waters of the exposition. The Penobscot was once a powerful tribe. In 1893, they were reduced to a few hundred members, living on Indian Island, or at Old Town, on the Penobscot River in Maine.
