This fascinating engraving presents traditional clothing and tools of Indigenous peoples in North America. At left are a man and woman of the Naudowessies (Dakota) tribe, located west of the Mississippi. The couple at right are Chipeways (Ojibwe) from east of the Mississippi. In the background are a few examples of Indigenous lodgings. Above are illustrations of a dagger, peace pipe, and tomahawk. The engraving appeared in John Hamilton Moore's (which may be a fictitious name) history of voyages, which was published by Alexander Hogg.

A nice impression with a light stain at left and light mat burn in the margins.
