'Portrait of a Stone Indian'
Head and shoulders portrait of an Assiniboine woman, here referred to as a 'Stone Indian'. She wears a yellow and pink smock, with a brown, fur-lined over coat. A bow and arrow is visible over her right shoulder.
Illustration from Narrative of a journey to the shores of the Polar Sea, by John Franklin (London, 1823).
John Franklin (1786-1847) British Naval officer and exporer was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1823. In 1819 he was chosen to lead the Coppermine Expedition overland from Hudson Bay to chart the North Coast of Canada.
The Assiniboine people, self-referentially Hohe Nakoda, are First Nations people originally from the Northern Great Plains of North America. The name 'Stone Indian' was ascribed to them by European explorers, owing to their technique of using fire heated rocks to boil broth.
