Stephen Coppel wrote, "This was selected by the Society of Canadian Painter-Etchers and Engravers as the presentation print for its members in 1952. It shows the costumes and headdresses of the North-West American Indian women of Nootka, British Columbia, and is the first print by Andrews to acknowledge her new Canadian surroundings."
