Comments

Shot of an old Indian "white man" house at modern Requa. Mrs. Josephine Peters noted that her great-grandmother lived in such a house at the present property of John Bennett, four miles up the Salmon River from Butler Flat: Josephine remembers this house occupied by her great-grandmother Jenny Red Cap about 1920. The house of her great-grandmother was characterized by its lack of any windows and its clay-and-stick chimney. Josephine noted that the chinking in her great-grandmother's cabin was of moss picked off of rocks in the creek: her great-grandmother would roll the moss on her thigh and then use it to fill cracks: she placed clay over the moss crack filler. The view of the hills at both the right and left of the cabin places the cabin in the area of modern Requa.
