Description:
Described in Vol. II, pp. 207-208. Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Precise image site not identified and not marked on locator map. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Chippeways gathering wild rice near the source of St. Peter's' shelling their rice into their bark canoes, by bending it over, and whipping it with sticks." Originally sketched in 1836 and painted in the period 1836-1837 (Truettner, 1979, p. 233). In the text, Catlin indicates that it is Sioux gathering the rice in canoes purchased from the Ojibwa. The St. Peter's River is now known as the Minnesota River.
