About this image
This image was copied by artist Seth Eastman in 1849 and printed in Henry Rowe Schoolcraft's "The History of the Indian Tribes of the United States, Historical and Statistical Information Respecting the History, Condition, and Prospects of the Indian Tribes of the United States" (Philadelphia, 1851). Schoolcraft says there (pp. 414-417) that a birch bark version was carried by Oshcabawis to Washington in 1849 when the tribe petitioned the U.S. to adjust boundaries of the 1842 LaPointe treaty.
