Title:
Blackfoot Women Moving Camp, No. 2
Credit Line:
Gift of Corliss C. and Audrienne H. Moseley
Gloss:
The subject of moving camp, traditionally the woman's duty, provided Borein with an opportunity to depict the Blackfoot women proudly riding horseback. The acquisition of horses not only facilitated a more rapid camp move, but also increased the distance bands could travel, and the quantity and variety of goods and household furnishings they could carry.
