Open year-round, the Fort Pitt Museum (Pittsburgh, PA) tells the story of Western Pennsylvania’s pivotal role during the French & Indian War, the American Revolution, and as the birthplace of Pittsburgh through interactive exhibitions, life-like figures, and 18th-century artifacts.
During the summer months, you can witness living history in Point State Park as the Fort Pitt Museum’s colonial reenactors demonstrate how life was lived during the 1700s.Ft. Pitt regularly celebrates American Indian heritage by inviting federally recognized tribes like the citizens of the Shawnee tribe, Navajo nation, Seneca-Cayuga Nation, Delaware tribe etc. There are no tribal governments within the state of Pennsylvania but there are federally recognized tribes who live in PA but their governments are not in Pennsylvania, but mainly in the west of Mississippi river.It was a joyous experience for me to be able to spend a day with the various members of these tribes and experience what life was like in the 1700s. I got a glimpse of their lifestyle, food, clothing, cooking and hunting tools and methods as well as what their modern day life entails, But the biggest surprise was the overlap of American Indian and Indian traditions and things like the use of vermillion and block printed cotton.In this particular painting, I have tried to capture a young man who was demonstrating the various aspects of hunting and his hunting equipment in the 1700s.
