The artist writes, “During the fur trade era from about 1825 to 1840, a Rendezvous was held every summer at a prearranged location. The fur companies offered goods of all description in exchange for hides that the Indians and trappers brought to trade. It was a lively and joyous camp with native sounds of women and children adding to the weeks of revelry and commerce.

“This painting depicts an Indian family readying to depart with their newly obtained wares. They will leave the Rendezvous with not only needed items from the outside world but also sharing memories of when people of different tribes and cultures came together in relative peace and harmony.”
