Fine hand-colored print by Karl Bodmer.

The print depicts the Ponca encampment on the banks of the Missouri River near Bazile Creek. This was the point where the steamer Yellowstone dropped off three Ponca Indians who had joined the party of Prince Maximillian Zu Wied Neu-Wied during their travels up the Missouri River in May 1833.

The view shows the three, including chief Schuh-De-Gá-Che (He Who Smokes) arriving ashore, with a welcoming party and village in the background.
