The woman was comely, and beautifully dressed; her dress of the mountain-sheep skins, tastefully ornamented with quills and beads, and her hair plaited in large braids, that hung down on her breast (Letters and Notes, vol. 2, p. 2, pl. 116).
Painted at Fort Pierre in 1832. Judging from Catlin's itinerary that summer, the bead and jewelry detail were probably later additions.
The subject also appears, full length, in cartoon 48, with her husband.
