8. Indian and Squaw with Travois

The glass lantern slide is of a man and woman on the backs of two white horses. Both the horses and the people are wearing very elaborate clothing and accessories. Attached to the woman's horse is a wooden frame, identified as a travois, loaded with packs. Next to the travois is another woman and a brown dog. There are other horses and green rolling hills in the background.
