HOPI WOMAN : TRADITIONAL HAIR STYLE : ACTED IN “HIS BLOSSOM BRIDE” : (1928)

This vintage press photograph features a Native American woman and an actress named Ynez Seabury. The woman is wearing traditional clothing and a traditional hair style (in blossoms). The Native American woman is from the Hopi tribe. The pair were appearing in a play together. There were also other Hopi cast members. The play was called “His Blossom Bride”.  Ynez Seabury (1907-1973) was an American actress who performed on the stage and in silent and early sound films. She was born in Oregon to parents who were both actors. She started her show business career as a child actor. She made her screen debut in D. W. Griffith’s, “The Miser’s Heart” (1911). The following year she appeared on Broadway. Many films followed. The IMDb reports that Seabury had 34 film credits. Her last feature film appearance was in a 1940 Cecil B. DeMille film.Seabury had dark features and as a result was often cast to play ethnic characters. A number of times she played Native American women. In 1928, she played a role in “His Blossom Bride”. This romantic drama premiered at the Mason Opera House in Los Angeles. Seabury played the Native American heroine but a number of Hopi tribesmen participated in the play. A popular online encyclopedia states that she was “revered” by the Hopis because she understood “their lives and ambitions”. The Hopi tribe lived primarily on the Hopi reservation located in Northeastern Arizona. This photograph was taken by J. C. Milligan. His name is embossed in the bottom right hand corner of the image.This photograph and caption appeared in at least one unidentified newspaper. (SOLD)
