Description:
Described in Vol. II, p. 215. Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Dance to the Medicine Bag of the Brave, Sacs and Foxes. Warriors returned from battle, with scalps, dance in front of the widow's lodge, whose husband has been killed. They sing to his medicine-bag, which is hung on a bush, and throw presents to the widow." Originally sketched in 1835 and painted in the period 1835-1837 (Truettner, 1979, p. 270).
