This lithograph showcases a multitude of the everyday occurrences within a Seminole camp in Florida, as indicated by the tall palm trees. A woman is making butter in a hollowed out log churn. Warriors are playing stick ball- a game similar in nature to la cross. An elder sits contemplatively in the foreground as perhaps he remembers the spirits of warriors of the past or asks the elders so of long ago for guidance, as was the custom. Soaring across the image of the moon is an owl, who is sacred to the Seminole. Kelly Haney as provided the viewer of this lithograph a capsule of what life was like for the peaceful Seminole.
