George Catlin, Buffalo Chase, a Surround by the Hidatsa, 1832-1833, oil, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Joseph Harrison, Jr., 1985.66.409
“We soon descried at a distance, a fine herd of buffaloes grazing, when a halt and a council were ordered and the mode of attack was agreed upon. I had armed myself with my pencil and my sketch-book only, and consequently took my position generally in the rear, where I could see and appreciate every manoeuvre.
