From the artist-assigned titles, the first few of these paintings are of sites in the lava beds of northern California and, from their appearance, several of the other paintings are of the same general area. The lava beds were inhabited by the Modoc tribe, but that tribe was removed to Oregon and Oklahoma before Schafer's arrival in California, so it is unlikely that the paintings are based on real life. Note also that locales and tribes named in bracketed painting titles may not be authoritative. Those titles were assigned by collectors or dealers and may only be an educated guess.
