Blackfoot family migrating • Blackfoot family migrating

This family of Blackfoot people is using the traditional carriage vehicle of many Native Americans: the travois. In this case, it’s being pulled by horses, although dogs might also have dragged this simple contraption across the prairies. How do you make an authentic travois? Well, you just need to bind two crossed poles with buffalo hide or sinew, and you have a neat way of transporting goods or even carrying the ill or infirm. Photo Credit: Bettmann/Getty Images
