About artist/note:

A label on the reverse of this artwork explains, “This is to show the contrast of the longhouse dwellings of the Hurons, with the temporary lodgings of the nomadic Algonkians.

The floor is covered with pine needles. Smoke from the cooking fire escapes through a single roof opening.

The activities shown are the stripping of a fox pelt, the tying of arrowheads and snowshoes, the shafting of a spear, the preparation of smaller animals for a meal, the filleting of fish, and the diversion of a baby with a rattle and chewing cob.”
