During the 1890s, Charles M. Russell painted a Blackfoot on horseback.
Recently, while visiting the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, I admired the painting titled “Bringing Home the Meat” and the Blackfoot woman who is the focus of Russell’s art.
Unnamed, she rides with an infant on her back and the carcass of a pronghorn antelope positioned across her saddle in front of her. Apparently, she had just finished a very successful hunting expedition. A packhorse trails behind her, and it carries two more antelope.
This working mother was a Resolute Woman.
