Oil painting on canvas depicts activities around a Maidu Roundhouse. The center of the composition contains a large wooden dome building with shingled roof and dirt floor, cut in half to show the interior. Around the building and inside, male and female figures perform various activities such as gathering sticks, weaving, basket making, etc. Small items are laid out on a dark blanket at the lower edge of the canvas. A fire burns on the ground in the center of the building.
