Notes This is a fine watercolor portraying a group of Blackfeet Indians riding up on a hillside overlooking the Missouri River. They see down below them a train of wagons bearing white settlers encroaching on their lands. The scene of the painting is likely located in the area near Adel-between Cascade and Great Falls-with the Missouri River in the foreground and the Smith River in the background.
