Piegan Woman
Piegan Woman Don Ross
Women were very important in Piegan society. They prepared the skins that were taken in the hunts which was a long and tiring process. It often took two to three days to skin and finish one hide. The women also set up and maintained the tipis that provided the lodging for the rest of the village. This first-hand involvement gave each woman complete ownership of the tipi in which her family lived. The women prepared the meals, took care of tipis and were taught how to make weapons, shields, tools, drums, and pipes.
 
 
A hundred years ago Edward S. Curtis traveled the American west photographing tribes of Native Americans. This is one of a series of paintings inspired by those photographs.
 
The canvas is 30" X 36" over 2.5" stretcher bars.
