Kinsman to the Shawnee - John Buxton

John Buxton, known for the painstaking research he puts into his historical paintings,
has left something to the viewer’s imagination in "Kinsman to the Shawnee." What are
the two men discussing and what is the native girl with flint corn and a grinding stone thinking?

We do know that 18th century French Canadian traders often married native women
and adopted the ways of their people to enable closer ties for better trade and protection.
These Canadians adopted native dress and often tattooed themselves as well, but it was
said – not about the face. If you look closely, you’ll see the native man on the right
has facial markings and the mark of a medicine wheel on his hand. The Canadian,
dressed in a French touque (or tuque), is tattooed with a Jesuit symbol.

Trade with their French brothers, and often with the British, became a staple of all
Indian nations. The cultural heritage of the Shawnee people is rich and colorful.
