About the painting:
The Seneca like the Native tribes in the southeast had blow guns, used mostly for hunting small animals and birds like the Passenger pigeons. Isaac Weld while traveling in the states of North America in 1795-97 tells of spending time with Seneca men hunting with blow guns. He describes them as being “Wonderfully expert” and have never known them once to miss their aim, at a distance often of 15 yards”. There is no documentation of them ever using poison on the tips of their darts, as there was no need when just hunting small game.
