Chief Dan George(?) with two women and a child

Photograph of a man who appears to be Chief Dan George with two women in masks and ceremonial robes. One woman is holding a young boy. Based on handwritten annotations from the album in which this print was originally housed, the woman holding the boy is Lily Alford Jolliffe(?), granddaughter of Chief Sewid. The photograph was taken indoors. A stamp on the verso of the print indicates that it was printed in 1958.
