Image of Caroline Parker Mountpleasant. This image depicts Caroline Parker Mountpleasant, a Haudenosaunee woman from the Seneca people, in traditional dress circa 1850. Carolyn Parker's skirt and overdress appear identical to one in the Lewis Henry Morgan collection of the New York State Museum. Several daguerreotypes of Caroline in costume were taken around 1850, including one in which she is shown seated. Courtesy of the Rochester Museum & Science Center.
