George Catlin, Arikara Village of Earth-Covered lodges, 1600 Miles above St. Louis, 1832, oil, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Joseph Harrison, Jr., 1985.66.386
“This village is built upon an open prairie, and the gracefully undulating hills that rise in the distance behind it are everywhere covered with a verdant green turf, without a tree or a bush anywhere to be seen. This view was taken from the deck of the steamer when I was on my way up the river.” (Catlin, Letters and Notes, vol. 1, no. 25, 1841; reprint 1973)
