CHAPTER IV. SETTLEMENTS BY THE DUTCH. On the fourth day of August, 1609, a Dutch ship under the command ofHen-ry Hud-son, an EngHshman, came to anchor in the bay of New York,Hud-son had been sent out by the East In-di-a Com-pa-ny to discover a north-west passage to Chi-na. But storms forced him to change his course and orJuly i8th he anchored in Pe-nob-scot Bay. Then turning southward he con-tinued on his way until he reached Ches-a-peake Bay.

When he was still an infant, Deming’s family moved from his birthplace in Ashland, Ohio, to western Illinois, an area that during those pre-and post-Civil War years retained a frontier character, and where roaming Winnebago Indians were sometimes neighbors. While still in his teens, Deming traveled to Indian territory in Oklahoma and sketched extensively. Determined to become a painter of Indians, he enrolled at the Art Students League, then spent a year at the Académie Julian in Paris (1884−85), studying under Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre. Back in the United States, he worked the next two years painting cycloramas. In 1887 Deming first visited and painted the Apaches and Pueblos of the Southwest. His active career of painting and illustrating took him repeatedly to the lands of the Blackfoot, Crow, and Sioux, as well as to Arizona and New Mexico. After the turn of the century, Deming devoted more time to sculpture but also began work on a series of romantic murals of Indian life, which were subsequently installed in the American Museum of Natural History and the Museum of the American Indian in New York.
