Of the painting artist Tom Saubert wrote, “From year to year, good patches of buffalo berries usually remained fairly stable in the locations known for them. Berry gathering was an important activity since the addition of this fruit was important to a diet heavy with meat. At the eastern edge of their territorial range, a band of Blackfeet have pitched their fall berry camp near Wild Horse Butte on Arrow Creek, just south of the Missouri River. It was an area visited by Assiniboine and Gros Ventre hunting parties. Ever wary, an older member of the band leads the younger guards as the vigilantly protect the berry pickers from paternal enemy surprise.”
