Pride of the Cheyenne by Howard Terpning

A Cheyenne woman proudly holds her baby in a cradleboard.

I was trying to show the determination in the woman's face," Terpning explains, "And the pride her people have in their children. It is said that in the past, when a tribe was hiding from enemies, a mother sometimes held her baby's nose to keep them from crying and revealing their whereabouts. Traditionally however, the Cheyenne are very indulgent with their children and never spank them."
