To the Native of the Eastern Woodlands the family was the core of all things. The family was life, and life was the nation. Increased pressure from white expansion and warfare threatened the Indian nations at their very center. More and more hunters, warriors, and Sachems were forced into the field, and away from their families. In this painting we see the man of the family as he prepares for such a journey. He is father, husband and son to those around him. The child in the foreground is clinging not only to him, but also to her family, and in her eyes is the sadness of the knowledge that possibly more than just Father is leaving.
