Hunting Buffalo | War Partners Parading in Camp

Ethnographic Notes

Page 9: Hunting Buffalo. Etahdleuh and a friend have crawled within rifle shot of a small herd of ten buffalo. They are on a low elevation, shooting downward. Perspective is suggested by the smaller size of the animals. Note that all are cows, often preferred for their more-tender meat. The pair of sticks each man has stuck in his belt might have been crossed in the left hand, and used as rifle rests, if necessary. Compare the drawing on Plate 11. Here, the hunters have succeeded in getting so close to their quarry, the extra supports are not needed.

Page 10: War Partners Parading in Camp. Most likely a self-portrait by Etahdleuh, who shows himself at the left. Both men are dressed in their best clothing, hoping to impress any eligible women.
