Catalogue Note

Very little is known of the artist who was an American active in New England circa 1843. A note on the gallery label on the reverse suggests that these could be either Montagnais or Naskapi people.  Their clothing suggests it appears more likely that they were MicMac people who inhabited the Maritimes and part of the Gaspé Peninsula.
