Native Americans traveling the waterways of North America were constantly confronted with sections of a river where canoes and baggage had to be transported over land, around falls and rapids. Sometimes a portage was as treacherous as the river itself. Carrying their heavy loads, Indians and Europeans could easily fall to their deaths trying to negotiate rocky terrain and steep cliffs.

Robert Griffing's painting “The Portage” gives us a glimpse of a rarely recorded but regular event of 18th century woodland Indian life.
