"Freckle Face" was taken by F.A. Rinehart, in 1898, capturing the image of a young Arapaho woman. Arapaho women played a vital role in their tribe's society and culture. Despite facing numerous challenges, such as the forced relocation to reservations and the threat of losing their cultural traditions, Arapaho women persevered and maintained their traditions and way of life.
At the turn of the 20th century, Arapaho women were responsible for many of the daily tasks, such as preparing food, caring for children, and making clothing and other household items. They also played an important role in the tribe's spiritual practices, serving as healers and participating in ceremonies.
Despite the challenges they faced, Arapaho women remained integral to their tribe and continued to pass down their cultural traditions to future generations. Today, their legacy lives on and continues to inspire future generations of Arapaho people.
