North American Indian


Engraving of a heavily tattooed North American Indian wearing a loincloth IN: 'Historiae Canadensis, seu Novae-Franciae Libri decem, ad annum usque Christi MDCLVI' by Francois du Creux', 1664. (New France ~~ Canada; Jesuit report)



From here

A 1750 account of Swedish botanist Peter Kalm, or the 18th-century letters of the Abbé Pierre Antoine Simon Maillard, may be the basis for this illustration. The artist shows a Mi’kmaq man with light hair, European features, and fictionalized accoutrements. From an engraving published in an encyclopedia by J. Grasset St. Saveur, 1796.
