mystery gilliam/tannehill lady

Photo Details

This photo is on a post card. I don't know when it was taken. The "odd background on it must have some importance. The picture as you can see is very bad. The picture is suppose to have been taken at an Indian Reservation or close by.

Mystery: This picture is of my Great Grandmother or Great Great Grandmother. If it is the Great Grandmother her maiden name is suppose to be M. P. Gilliam, known to us as Maggie. She was born in 1870 in Arkansas and married in 1885 to Thomas Benton Tannehill. She died on 9 July 1904 in Ozark Co., MO.
If the picture is of her mother I do not know anything. I don't know much about M. P. Gilliam except she is suppose to be Indian or part Indian.
M. P. Gilliam Tannehill had all multiple births with only one child living at each birth. My Grandmother was born and her mother, M. P. Gilliam Tannehill died that day. In total living there were 3 boys and 2 girls. Thomas B. Tannehill married a few year later to Mary Jane Mashburn.
Any help with the picture or person would be appreciated.
