Scope and content

Stelkia, Armstrong, Pierre and Kruger families are closely related by a series of marriages, and their family photos have tended to coincide and intermingle within the collection. With the families being of First Nations ancestry (as well as some European), these photographs are also highly correlated with the South Okanagan Indian Bands subseries. Subject matter of photographs is concentrated on ranching, rodeo, and family functions.
