Winter documented the government forced relocation of the Potawatomi and Miami tribes. Many of these paintings now belong to the Tippecanoe County Historical Association. Winter documented Native American culture as their communities slowly vanished due to government intervention. Winter built relationships with members of the Miami and Potawatomi tribes and had opportunities to sketch and paint portraits of several members. Winter kept a journal describing each of his paintings.
