Encampment of Piekann Indians
1842. BODMER, Karl. Encampment of Piekann Indians, Near Fort McKenzie on the Muscleshell River. Philadelphia: Daniel Rice and James G. Clark, circa 1842. Folio (measures 20-1/2 by 14 inches), mounted and matted. $1800.Early printing of Bodmer's 43rd plate made during his travels into the “deep west” with Baron Braunsberg, Prince Maximilian, in June 1833, finely hand-colored.The print depicts the three tribes of the Blackfeet at McKenzie on the Marias River, erroneously identified as the Muscleshell River in McKenney and Hall. “These three hard-riding, maraudering, and treacherous tribes were the Huns of the plains. War was their god and they broke as many treaties as the white man. The Piegans [Piekanns] were the most congenial of the three tribes” (Horan, 354). Bright, clean lithograph with a few small closed tears. A lovely print.
