A group of Métis men from the Red River Colony (a territory in Manitoba centred at modern-day Winnipeg) stop for a rest during a journey to Pembina, North Dakota. Surrounding the men are several Red River Carts. These iconic vehicles were usually made entirely of wood, and made a loud squeaking noise as they rumbled across the prairies.
