  _Washington, D. C., November 1, 1877._

The collection of photographic portraits of North American Indians
described in the following "Catalogue" is undoubtedly the largest and
most valuable one extant. It has been made at great labor and expense,
during a period of about twenty-five years, and now embraces over one
thousand negatives, representing no less than twenty-five tribes. Many
of the individuals portrayed have meanwhile died; others, from various
causes, are not now accessible; the opportunity of securing many of the
subjects, such as scenes and incidents, has of course passed away. The
collection being thus unique, and not to be reproduced at any
expenditure of money, time, or labor, its value for ethnological
purposes cannot easily be over-estimated.

Now that the tribal relations of these Indians are fast being
successively sundered by the process of removal to reservations, which
so greatly modifies the habits and particularly the style of dress of
the aborigines, the value of such a graphic record of the past increases
year by year; and there will remain no more trustworthy evidence of what
the Indians have been than that afforded by these faithful sun-pictures,
many of which represent the villages, dwellings, and modes of life of
these most interesting people, and historical incidents of the
respective tribes, as well as the faces, dresses, and accoutrements of
many prominent individuals.

Those who have never attempted to secure photographs and measurements or
other details of the physique of Indians, in short, any reliable
statistics of individuals or bands, can hardly realize the obstacles to
be overcome. The American Indian is extremely superstitious, and every
attempt to take his picture is rendered difficult if not entirely
frustrated by his deeply-rooted belief that the process places some
portion of himself in the power of the white man, and his suspicion that
such control may be used to his injury. No prescribed regulations for
the taking of photographs, therefore, are likely to be fully carried
out. As a rule, front and profile views have been secured whenever
practicable. Usually it is only when an Indian is subjected to
confinement that those measurements of his person which are suitable for
anthropological purposes can be secured. In most cases the Indian will
not allow his person to be handled at all, nor submit to any
inconvenience whatever. Much tact and perseverance are required to
overcome his superstitious notions, and in many cases, even of the most
noted chiefs of several tribes, no portrait can be obtained by any
inducement whatever. If, therefore, the collection fails to meet the
full requirements of the anthropologist, it must be remembered that the
obstacles in the way of realizing his ideal of a perfect collection are

About two hundred of the portraits, or one-fifth of the whole
collection, have been derived from various sources, and most of these
are pictures of Indians composing the several delegations that have
visited Washington from time to time during the past ten years. Such
individuals are usually among the most prominent and influential members
of the respective tribes, of which they consequently furnish the best
samples. The greater portion of the whole collection is derived from the
munificent liberality of William Blackmore, esq., of London, England,
the eminent anthropologist who has for many years studied closely the
history, habits, and manners of the North American Indians. The
Blackmore portion of the collection consists of a number of smaller lots
from various sources; and it is Mr. Blackmore's intention to enlarge it
to include, if possible, all the tribes of the North American continent.

The entire collection, at the present time consisting of upward of a
thousand negatives, represents ten leading "families" of Indians,
besides seven independent tribes, the families being divisible into
fifty-four "tribes," subdivision of which gives forty-three "bands." The
collection continues to increase as opportunity offers.

The present "Catalogue" prepared by Mr. W. H. Jackson, the well-known
and skilful photographer of the Survey, is far more than a mere
enumeration of the negatives. It gives in full, yet in concise and
convenient form, the information which the Survey has acquired
respecting the subjects of the pictures, and is believed to represent an
acceptable contribution to anthropological literature.

  _United States Geologist_.


The following Descriptive Catalogue is intended to systematize the
collection of Photographic Portraits of Indians now in the possession of
the United States Geological Survey of the Territories, and to place on
record all the information we have been able to obtain of the various
individuals and scenes represented. It is of course far from complete;
but it is a beginning, and every new fact that comes to light will be
added to what has already been secured. This information has been
gathered from many sources, principally from Indian delegates visiting
Washington, and by correspondence with agents and others living in the
Indian country.

Particular attention has been paid to proving the authenticity of the
portraits of the various individuals represented, and it is believed
that few, if any, mistakes occur in that respect.

The historical notices are mainly compilations from standard works on
the subject.

All of the following portraits and views are photographed direct from
nature, and are in nearly every case from the original plates, the
exceptions being good copies from original daguerreotypes or photographs
that are not now accessible.

The portraits made under the supervision of the Survey are generally
accompanied by measurements that are as nearly accurate as it has been
possible to make them.

The pictures vary in size from the ordinary small card to groups on
plates 16 by 20 inches square. The majority, however, are on plates
6-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches square; these are usually trimmed to 4 by 5-1/2
inches, and mounted on cabinet cards.

All the photographs are numbered upon their faces, and as these numbers
do not occur in regular order in the text a Numerical Index is appended,
by means of which the name of any picture, and the page on which the
subject is treated, may be readily found.

Early in the seventeenth century, the Algonkins were the largest family
of North American Indians within the present limits of the United
States, extending from Newfoundland to the Mississippi, and from the
waters of the Ohio to Hudson's Bay and Lake Winnipeg. Northeast and
northwest of them were the Eskimos and the Athabascas; the Dakotas
bounded them on the west, and the Mobilian tribes, Catawbas, Natchez,
&c., on the south. Within this region also dwelt the Iroquois and many
detached tribes from other families. All the tribes of the Algonkins
were nomadic, shifting from place to place as the fishing and hunting
upon which they depended required. There has been some difficulty in
properly locating the tribe from which the family has taken its name,
but it is generally believed they lived on the Ottawa River, in Canada,
where they were nearly exterminated by their enemies, the Iroquois. The
only remnant of the tribe at this time is at the Lake of the Two

Of the large number of tribes forming this family, many are now extinct,
others so reduced and merged into neighboring tribes as to be lost,
while nearly all of the rest have been removed far from their original
hunting-grounds. The Lenni Lenape, from the Delaware, are now leading a
civilized life far out on the great plains west of the Missouri, and
with them are the Shawnees from the south and the once powerful
Pottawatamies, Ottawas, and Miamis from the Ohio Valley. Of the many
nations forming this great family, we have a very full representation in
the following catalogue, about equally divided between the wild hunters
and the civilized agriculturists.


"This nation has received a variety of names from travellers and the
neighboring tribes, as Shyennes, Shiennes, Cheyennes, Chayennes,
Sharas, Shawhays, Sharshas, and by the different bands of Dakotas,
Shaí-en-a or Shai-é-la. With the Blackfeet, they are the most western
branch of the great Algonkin family. When first known, they were living
on the Chayenne or Cayenne River, a branch of the Red River of the
North, but were driven west of the Mississippi by the Sioux, and about
the close of the last century still farther west across the Missouri,
where they were found by those enterprising travelers Lewis and Clark in
1803. On their map attached to their report they locate them near the
eastern face of the Black Hills, in the valley of the great Sheyenne
River, and state their number at 1,500 souls." Their first treaty with
the United States was made in 1825, at the mouth of the Teton River.
They were then at peace with the Dakotas, but warring against the
Pawnees and others. Were then estimated, by Drake, to number 3,250.

During the time of Long's expedition to the Rocky Mountains, in 1819 and
1820, a small portion of the Cheyennes seem to have separated themselves
from the rest of their nation on the Missouri, and to have associated
themselves with the Arapahoes who wandered about the tributaries of the
Platte and Arkansas, while those who remained affiliated with the
Ogalallas, these two divisions remaining separated until the present
time. Steps are now being taken, however, to bring them together on a
new reservation in the Indian Territory.

Up to 1862, they were generally friendly to the white settlers, when
outbreaks occurred, and then for three or four years a costly and bloody
war was carried on against them, a notable feature of which was the Sand
Creek or Chivington massacre, November 29, 1864. "Since that time there
has been constant trouble. * * * In '67, General Hancock burned the
village of the Dog Soldiers, on Pawnee Fork, and another war began, in
which General Custer defeated them at Washita, killing Black Kettle and
37 others." The northern bands have been generally at peace with the
whites, resisting many overtures to join their southern brethren.

Migrating from the East late in the sixteenth or early in the
seventeenth century, the Chippewas, or Ojibwas, settled first about the
Falls of Saint Mary, from which point they pushed still farther
westward, and eventually compelled the Dakotas to relinquish their
ancient hunting-grounds about the headwaters of the Mississippi and of
the Red River of the North. Were first known to the French, about 1640,
who called them _Sauteux_, from the place of their residence about Sault
Ste. Marie, a name still applied to them by the Canadian French. They
were then living in scattered bands on the banks of Lake Superior and
Lake Huron, and at war with the Foxes, Iroquois, and Dakotas, becoming
thereby much reduced in numbers. Were firm allies of the French in all
of their operations against the English, and took a prominent part in
Pontiac's uprising. During the revolutionary war they were hostile to
the colonists, but made a treaty of peace with them at its close. They
again sided with the English in the war of 1812, but joined in a general
pacification with a number of other tribes in 1816. Like other tribes,
they gradually ceded their lands to the Government, receiving in return
annuities and goods, until in 1851 all but a few bands, retaining but
moderate reservations, had removed west of the Mississippi.

"The Chippewas, now numbering 19,606, formerly ranged over Michigan,
Wisconsin, and Minnesota, and with common interests, and acknowledging
more or less the leadership of one controlling mind, formed a
homogeneous and powerful nation; a formidable foe to the Sioux, with
whom they waged incessant warfare, which was checked only by the removal
of the Minnesota Sioux to Dakota after the outbreak of 1863."

The collecting of the Chippewas upon thirteen reservations, scattered
over the above-named States, under five different agencies, has so
modified the _esprit du corps_ of the tribe that, though speaking the
same language and holding the same traditions and customs, the bands
located in different sections of the country have few interests and no
property in common, and little influence or intercourse with each other.
The agency has taken the place of the nation, and is in turn developing
the individual man, who, owning house, stock, and farm, has learned to
look solely to his own exertions for support. No tribe by unswerving
loyalty deserves more of the Government, or is making, under favorable
conditions, more gratifying progress; 9,850 of the tribe live in houses,
9,345 are engaged in agriculture and other civilized occupations; and
13,202 wear citizen's dress. Fifty-seven per cent. of their subsistence
is obtained by their own labor, mainly in farming; for the rest, they
depend on game and fish, especially the latter, of which they readily
obtain large quantities.

The Chippewas are extensively intermarried with the Ottawas, and are
thrifty and worthy citizens of the United States, as are also those of
Saginaw, and of Keewenaw Bay in Michigan. The Bad River, Red Cliff, Red
Lake, and Mississippi bands are likewise making rapid progress in
civilization. Of those which have made but little or no progress are the
Leech Lake, White Earth, Mille Lac, and other scattered bands in remote
and inaccessible regions of Minnesota and Wisconsin, the older chiefs
resolutely opposing any attempt on the part of the younger men to begin
a civilized life.

  80, 1069. QUI-WI-ZHEN-SHISH. _Bad Boy._                      RED LAKE.

    Foremost brave of the Red Lake band. His father was chief, which
    office is now held by his older brother. Was ranked as one of the
    bravest of the Chippewas in their battles with the Sioux, and took
    many scalps. Was a fine speaker and a man of much influence. Farmed
    very successfully and raised considerable corn, and was also a good
    hunter. Had two wives. Died in 1872.

    A brave of the Pembinas, formerly residing near the British line,
    but now removed, with his band, to the White Earth reservation. Has
    the reputation of being a miserable, worthless Indian, unwilling to
    work, and adhering with great tenacity to the heathenish customs of
    his tribe. Was baptized in his infancy by the Roman Catholics, but
    has renounced his Christianity. Has had his skull broken three times
    in quarrels with his own people, and has been twice wounded in
    fights with the Sioux.

    old age. Was a great hunter, and farmed considerably also. Was much
    respected by the Red Lake bands, and especially so by the whites.

  1073. ME-JAW-KEY-OSH. _Something in the Air Gradually Falling to
        the Earth._                                            RED LAKE.

    A brave but recently made a chief of the Red Lake Chippewas, and is
    ranked as the very bravest of all his tribe. Had always been
    accustomed to fight the Sioux, but after the massacre of 1862-'63
    re-organized and led a small party of from six to ten of his bravest
    men against them every summer for some time, killing with his own
    hand fifteen of their enemies and bringing home their scalps. Was a
    crafty warrior and knew well how to slay his foe without losing his
    own life. He still lives, farming and hunting for a living, and is a
    man of great influence in his band.

  1074. ESSINIWUB OGWISSUN. _The Son of Essiniwub._            RED LAKE.

    A quiet, peaceable young man, never on the war-path, peace having
    been declared with the Sioux before he came of age.

  1075. MAIADJIAUSH. _Something Beginning to Sail Off._        RED LAKE.

    A brave residing at Red Lake. His father was a chief and his younger
    brother the present head chief of the Red Lake band. Ten years ago

When first discovered by the whites, the Delawares were living on the
banks of the Delaware, in detached bands under separate sachems, and
called themselves Renappi--a collective term for men--or, as it is now
written, Lenno Lenape. In 1616 the Dutch began trading with them,
maintaining friendly relations most of the time, and buying so much of
their land that they had to move inland for game and furs. Penn and his
followers, succeeding, kept up the trade and bought large tracts of
land, but the Indians claimed to have been defrauded and showed a
reluctance to move. They then numbered about 6,000. With the assistance
of the Indians of the Six Nations the authorities compelled the
Delawares to retire. At the beginning of the Revolution there were none
east of the Alleghanies. By treaty in 1789 lands were reserved to them
between the Miami and Cuyahoga, and on the Muskingum. In 1818 the
Delawares ceded all their lands to the Government and removed to White
River, Missouri, to the number of 1,800, leaving a small number in Ohio.
Another change followed eleven years after, when 1,000 settled by treaty
on the Kansas and Missouri Rivers, the rest going south to Red River.

During the late civil war they furnished 170 soldiers out of an
able-bodied male population of 201.

In 1866 sold their land to the railroad which ran across it, and buying
land of the Cherokees, settled where the main body now resides, small
bands being scattered about among the Wichitas and Kiowas.

In 1866, by a special treaty, they received and divided the funds held
for their benefit, took lands in severalty, and ceased to be regarded as
a tribe. They have given up their Indian ways and live in comfortable
houses. Many of them are efficient farmers and good citizens. They are
becoming so incorporated with other tribes that there has been no late
enumeration made of them as a whole. During the late war they numbered

  181-2. BLACK BEAVER.

    Is a full-blood Delaware. Has travelled very extensively through the
    mountains, serving at one time as a captain in the United States
    Army. Has a large farm under cultivation, and lives in a very
    comfortable manner, having good, substantial frontier buildings. He
    commenced life as a wild Indian trapper, until, becoming familiar
    with almost all of the unexplored region of the West, and being a
    remarkably truthful and reliable man, he was much sought after as a
    guide, and accompanied several expeditions in that capacity. His
    life has been one of bold adventure, fraught with many interesting
    incidents, which, if properly written out, would form an interesting
    and entertaining volume.--_Batty._

  186. GREAT BEAR.


Were known to the French as early as 1640, and were then living on the
Menomonee River, emptying into Green Bay, Wisconsin. Their name is that
of the wild rice upon which they largely depend for their subsistence.
This is one of the few tribes in the United States who have never been
removed from their old home, and are still residing on the same spot
where they were first known. Served with the French against the Foxes in
1712, and against the English up to 1763, participating in Braddock's
defeat, battles of Fort William Henry and the Plains of Abraham. Were
allies of the English during the Revolution, and also in the second war
with Great Britain. In 1831 commenced ceding their lands to the
Government for money payments, until they were finally located in 1854
in their present reservation in Shawano County, Wisconsin, consisting of
231,680 acres of very poor land. They are declining rapidly in numbers.
In 1822 were estimated at 3,900; the present count makes them 1,522. Are
now living in a civilized way, with a large proportion of their children
attending school regularly. Their main dependence is upon the lumber
trade, cutting during the last winter over 5,000,000 feet of logs,
netting them $4 per 1,000.

  852. MOSES LADD.

    An intelligent and influential man in the tribe, a grandson of
    Corrow and nephew of Shu-na-ma-shu-na-ne, noted chiefs of the
    Menomonees. In 1876 Mr. Ladd was sent as a delegate from his tribe
    to Washington to settle various complications before the Departments
    and Congress. Was born at Green Bay, Wis., in 1828. Is of mixed


In 1658 were found on Green Bay, Wisconsin, and in 1670 near the head of
Fox River, and were then said to number 8,000 warriors, living in mat
houses within a palisade. Their early history is full of their many
engagements with Iroquois, Sioux, and the French, in all of which they
lost heavily. Sided with the English in the revolutionary war,
continuing hostile to the United States until 1815. They then numbered
3,000, but their wars had left them in a badly demoralized condition,
leading to broils among themselves, in which nearly 500 perished in
eighteen years. In 1835 a portion, numbering 384, were removed from
Indiana to the south side of the Kansas River. By 1838 the Miamies
remaining in Indiana, then numbering 1,100, sold the rest of their
lands; and in 1846 500 of them removed to Kansas, where in twenty-two
years they were reduced to 92. In 1873 their lands were sold, when most
of the tribe confederated with the Peorias, a few remaining in Kansas as
citizens. Are now very much scattered, with no agency of their own, and
number, as near as can be ascertained, less than 100. The subjects of
the following photographs are of mixed blood:

When first discovered by the early French explorers were residing on the
northwest shore of the peninsula of Michigan. After the defeat of the
Hurons in 1649, they fled before the Iroquois to beyond the Mississippi,
but were soon compelled to retrace their steps by the Dakotas, and
finally settled at Mackinaw, where they joined the French in many of
their operations and in their contest for Canada. At its close, Pontiac,
head chief of the Detroit Ottawas, organized a great conspiracy for the
destruction of the English, which was only partially successful. During
the Revolution were with the English. At its close a long series of
treaties followed, until, in 1833, those in Michigan ceded their lands
and removed south of the Missouri River. In 1836 those in Ohio sold
their lands and removed to the Indian Territory and prospered, becoming
citizens of the United States in 1867. In 1870 made another move to a
new reservation of 25,000 acres near the Shawnees, where they are now
living, reduced to 140. A large number of Ottawas are now living on the
shore of Lake Superior, so intermarried and confederated with the
Chippewas that there is no attempt at any distinction between them, the
two combined numbering over 6,000. In Canada there are about 1,000 more,
all self-supporting.

Early in 1600 were occupying the lower peninsula of Michigan in
scattered bands, whence they were finally driven westward by the
Iroquois, and settled about Green Bay. The French acquired much
influence over them, whom they joined in their wars with the Iroquois.
Joined Pontiac in his uprising in 1763. Hostile to colonists during the
Revolution, but made a peace in 1795, joining the English again,
however, in 1812. New treaties followed by which their lands were almost
entirely conveyed away, until in 1838 a reserve was allotted them on the
Missouri, to which 800 were removed. The whole tribe then numbered about
4,000, some bands of which had made considerable progress in
civilization, while a part, called the Pottawatomies of the Prairie,
were roving and pagan. Those in Kansas made rapid progress in
civilization. In 1867, 1,400 out of 2,180 elected to become citizens and
take their lands in severalty; the others held to their tribal
organization, but disintegration set in and many became wanderers, some
even going to Mexico. It is difficult at the present time to estimate
their whole number, owing to their scattered condition. There are only
450 in the Indian Territory, under the care of the Indian Bureau, and in
Michigan 60. The others are citizens or roaming in Mexico. Of this once
numerous and powerful nation we have but a single illustration, viz:

The Sacs, Sauks, or Saukies, as it has been variously written--a word
meaning white clay--and the Foxes, or Outagamies, or more properly the
Musquakkink, (Red Clay), are now as one tribe. They were first
discovered settled about Green Bay, Wis., but their possessions extended
westward, so that the larger part was beyond the Mississippi. They
partly subdued and admitted into their alliance the Iowas, a Dakota
tribe. By 1804 they had ceded all their lands east of the Mississippi,
and settled on the Des Moines River, moving subsequently to the Osage,
and most of these finally to the Indian Territory. In 1822 the united
bands numbered 8,000, but are now reduced to a little more than 1,000,
of whom 341 are still in Iowa, 430 in the Indian Territory, 98 in
Nebraska, and about 200 in Kansas. The Sacs and Foxes of the Mississippi
in the Indian Territory have a reservation of 483,840 acres.
Unsuccessful attempts have been made lately to induce those in Kansas to
join them. Those in Iowa are living on a section of land purchased by
themselves. The Sacs and Foxes of the Missouri have 4,863 acres of land
in Nebraska, but it is proposed to remove them soon to the Indian

    "The entire absence of records by which the chronology of events
    might be ascertained, renders it impossible to trace, in the order
    of their date, the steps by which this remarkable man rose to the
    chief place of his nation, and acquired a commanding and permanent
    influence over his people.

    "Keokuk is in all respects a magnificent savage. Bold, enterprising,
    and impulsive, he is also politic, and possesses an intimate
    knowledge of human nature, and a tact which enables him to bring the
    resources of his mind into prompt operation. His talents as a
    military chief and civil ruler are evident from the discipline which
    exists among his people."--_McKinney._

    A Mexican by birth, and interpreter for the Sacs and Foxes since
    1858. Was sold to the Comanches when thirteen years of age, but ran
    away and joined the Kickapoos. Was captured again by the Comanches
    while he was out with the Kickapoos hunting, but was allowed to
    escape and rejoin his Indian friends. Drove Government teams for a
    while between Forts Leavenworth and Kearney. In 1852 joined the Sacs
    and Foxes, and participated in some of their battles on the plains.

    He has been married into the following tribes: Caddoes, Kickapoos,
    Pawnees, Seminoles, Shawnees, Pottawatomies, Winnebagoes, Iowas, and
    Sacs and Foxes of Missouri; and speaks the languages of the Creeks,
    Caddo, Comanche, Pottawatomie, Kick-a-poo, Sac and Fox, Pawnee,
    Iowa, and Winnebago, besides English and Spanish.

  708. SAC CHIEF.







The Shawnees or Shawanoes are an erratic tribe of Algonkin stock,
supposed to have been one primarily with the Kickapoos. Were first
discovered in Wisconsin, but moved eastwardly, and, coming in contact
with the Iroquois south of Lake Erie, were driven to the banks of the
Cumberland. Some passed thence into South Carolina and Florida, and, by
the early part of the eighteenth century, had spread into Pennsylvania
and New York. At the close of the Spanish and English war those in
Florida emigrated and joined the northern bands, and, again coming into
contact with the Iroquois, were driven westward into Ohio. Joined in
Pontiac's uprising in 1763, and rallied under the English flag during
the Revolution. In 1795 the main body of the tribe were on the Scioto,
but some had already crossed the Mississippi and others south. Those in
Missouri ceded their lands to the Government in 1825, and those in Ohio
in 1831, for new homes in the Indian Territory. In 1854 the main body in
the Indian Territory disbanded their tribal organization and divided
their lands in severalty.

The _Eastern Shawnees_ are those who emigrated direct from Ohio to the
Indian Territory, where they now are. They number 97, and are successful

The _Absentee Shawnees_ are those who, thirty-five years since, seceded
from the main portion of the tribe in Kansas and located in the northern
part of the Indian Territory, where they have received no aid from
Government, but are now in a highly prosperous condition. They number
563 at the present time.

10. Pequod.

Of the five principal nations of New England in 1674, the Pequods or
Mohegans, the two being considered as one, were tribes of considerable
influence and strength of numbers, claiming authority over all the
Indians of the Connecticut Valley. Jonathan Edwards states that the
language of the Stockbridge or Muhhekanew (Mohegan) was spoken
throughout New England. Nearly every tribe had a different dialect, but
the language was radically the same. Elliot's translation of the Bible
is in a particular dialect of this language. The Stockbridges, so named
from the place of their residence, was originally a part of the
Housatonic tribe of Massachusetts, to whom the legislature of that State
granted a section of land in 1736. They were subsequently removed to New
Stockbridge and Brotherton, in Western New York, many other tribes of
New England and also of New York joining them. They had good lands and
fine farms, and were rapidly becoming worthy of citizenship, when, in
1857, they were removed to a reservation near Green Bay, Wisconsin, on
which, their agent reported, no white man could obtain a comfortable
livelihood by farming. They have been divided for some time into two
bands, known as the "citizen" and "Indian" factions, the former having
lived off from the reservation for the past twelve years. In 1875, 134
of the "citizens" received their per capita share of the tribal
property, and became private citizens of the United States. The tribe
has 118 members remaining.

  1050. NA-UN-NAUP-TAUK. _Jacob Jacobs._      STOCKBRIDGE.

    A delegate from the Stockbridge Indians to Washington in 1875, and
    again in 1876. Born in Wisconsin in 1834. Belongs to the "citizen"
    band, and participated in the late division of the tribal property
    and separation from the tribe.

  1049. WAUN-NAUN-CON. _J. C. W. Adams._      STOCKBRIDGE.

    Born on the Seneca reservation in New York in 1843, and removed to
    Wisconsin in 1853. Received a collegiate education at the Lawrence
    University. In 1876 represented the Stockbridges and Munsees as a
    delegate in Washington.


    A member of the Brotherton branch of the Pequod Nation. Born in
    Oneida County, New York, in 1823, but emigrated with some of the
    Stockbridges to Wisconsin in 1836. Chosen as a delegate to
    Washington on behalf of the Stockbridges and Munsees.


A family of North American Indians, comprising two large divisions, one
living in the British Possessions, between Hudson's Bay and the Pacific,
and the other along the southern boundary of the United States, in
Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, with some smaller bands along the
western coast, north of Oregon.

The name of the family is derived from Lake Athabasca, a Cree word,
meaning "cords of hay." They are supposed by many to be of Tartar
descent, and their language has been found to be somewhat analogous to
that of Thibet. Their traditions point to an emigration from the West,
over a series of islands, and amid much snow and ice. The southern
branch includes the nomadic Apaches, the industrious Navajos, and a
small remnant of Lipans in Texas, numbering, in all, over 20,000.


One of the most numerous branches of Athabascan stock are the _Apaches_,
a fierce, nomadic nation, roaming over the Territories of New Mexico and
Arizona, and Sonora and Chihuahua. Always a scourge and a terror to
settlers, they have held in check for many years the civilization of the
country covered by their depredations. In 1831 Gregg wrote of them:
"They are the most extensive and powerful, and yet the most vagrant, of
all the savage nations that inhabit the interior of Northern Mexico.
They are supposed to number 15,000 souls, although they are subdivided
into various petty bands and are scattered over an immense tract of
country. They never construct houses, but live in the ordinary wigwam or
tent of skins and blankets. They manufacture nothing, cultivate nothing.
They seldom resort to the chase, as their country is destitute of game,
but seem to depend entirely upon pillage for the support of their
immense population, at least 2,000 of which are warriors."

Steadily resisting all attempts at conversion by the missionaries, they
gathered about them many of the disaffected tribes and made frequent
descents upon missions and towns, ravaging, destroying, and completely
depopulating many of them. Since the annexation of their territory to
the United States they have caused much trouble, and an almost constant
warfare has been kept up against them until quite recently. Successful
military campaigns broke up their predatory habits, and since then the
efforts which have been made to gather them upon reservations, where
they could be cared for until capable of self-sustenance, are proving
entirely successful. At the present time more than half the whole nation
are on the San Carlos reservation in Arizona, where they have nearly
4,000 square miles, or over 2,500,000 acres, situated upon both sides of
the Rio Gila, between the one hundred and ninth and one hundred and
eleventh meridians, 400 acres of which are now under cultivation by
Indian labor entirely, producing 10,000 bushels of potatoes, 2,000
bushels of corn, and large quantities of other vegetables. They draw
their entire subsistence from the Government, but only in return for
labor performed, and under this law are doing much good in the way of
making and repairing irrigating-ditches, clearing and fencing land, &c.
Are now occupying 223 comfortable houses, built for them. "When it is
considered that only 2,000 of these Indians have been on the reservation
two years, most of whom were participants in the outbreaks of last year
(1874); that the 1,400 Ponto, Yuma, and Mohave Apaches from Verde
arrived in March last; and that the 1,800 Coyoteros from White Mountain
agency arrived July last, after harvest, the above figures will be found
a most striking exhibit of the results of the application of a firm
control and common-sense treatment for one year."

Besides the San Carlos reservation in Arizona, there are two others in
New Mexico, upon which are gathered most of the rest of the Apaches,
with the exception of about 650 in the Indian Territory.

The Mescalero reservation, midway between the Rio Grande and the Pecos,
contains some 570,000 acres, upon which are the Mescaleros and some
other smaller bands, to the number of about 1,100. But little has been
done in the way of civilizing them, and they depend almost entirely upon
the Government for their subsistence.

The Jicarilla reservation, intended for the sub-tribe of that name, is
of about the same dimensions as that of the Mescaleros, and lies between
the San Juan River and the northern boundary-line of New Mexico. The
Jicarillas, who number about 1,000, have not as yet been placed upon
this reserve, but roam at will over the surrounding country, spending
much of their time with the southern Utes, with whom they have
intermarried to a considerable extent. They draw a portion of their
subsistence from the Government and depend upon their own resources for
the rest.

The Annual Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs for 1875
subdivides and enumerates the Apaches as follows:

    has always been on friendly terms with them. Young Guerito was sent
    to Washington in 1873, joining the Ute delegation, for the purpose
    of effecting some treaty whereby these Apaches might have set apart
    for them a piece of land of their own to cultivate, as now they roam
    on Ute land and have no home they can call their own. He is a
    relative of Ouray, the great chief of the Utes, and through the
    latter's influence some such arrangement was effected. Guerito is a
    quiet and peaceable young man, a representative of his tribe, who
    prefer farming, and shrink from all wars against either Indians or
    white men.

          Nos. 853-871.


A very numerous band of the Apache Nation inhabiting the mountains and
plateaus of Arizona and New Mexico, between the San Juan and Little
Colorado Rivers, ever since our first knowledge of them. The Spaniards
early recognized their relation to the Apaches, although they differ
totally from them in their industrious habits, being by far the most
civilized of any tribe of Athabascan descent. They have evidently been
quick to take advantage of their contact with the semi-civilized Pueblos
and Moquis, and from them have acquired many useful arts--chiefly in
learning to spin and weave. Their blankets, woven in looms, are of great
excellence, and frequently bring from $25 to $100. They cultivate the
soil extensively, raising large quantities of corn, squashes, melons,
&c. Colonel Baker, in 1859, estimated their farms at 20,000 acres,
evidently too large an estimate, as their agent's report for 1875 places
the cultivated lands at only 6,000 acres. Their principal wealth,
however, is in horses, sheep, and goats, having acquired them at an
early day and fostered their growth, so that they now count their horses
by the thousand, and their sheep by hundreds of thousands.
Notwithstanding the excellence of their manufactures, their houses are
rude affairs, called by the Spaniards _jackals_, and by themselves
_hogans_--small conical huts of poles, covered with branches, and in
winter with earth. Like the Apaches, they have made incessant war on the
Mexicans, who have made many unsuccessful attempts to subjugate them.
The expeditions against them on the part of the United States by
Doniphan in 1846, Wilkes in 1847, Newby in 1848, and Washington in
1849, were practically failures. Colonel Sumner established Fort
Defiance in 1851, but was forced to retreat, and all other attempts to
subdue them were defeated until the winter campaign in 1863, when
Colonel Carson compelled them to remove to the Bosque Redondo, on the
Pecos River, where 7,000 were held prisoners by the Government for
several years. In 1868 a treaty was made with them under which they were
removed to Fort Wingate, and the following year back to their old home
around Fort Defiance and the cañon De Chelly, where a reservation of
5,200 square miles was assigned them. The latest count puts their number
at 11,768--3,000 of whom are said to come directly under the civilizing
influences of the agency. Schools are not well established yet, but few
of their children attending, and then very irregularly. Although they
produce largely, yet they are dependent upon the Government for
two-thirds of their subsistence. They dress well, chiefly in materials
of their own make, and covering the whole body.

A large family of North American Indians, embracing the Assinaboins or
Stone Sioux, the Dakotas proper, or, as they are called by the
Algonkins, Nadowesioux, from which is derived the word Sioux; Omahas,
Otoes, Osages, Poncas, Iowas, Kansas, Missourias, Minatarees, and Crows.
Until quite recently they occupied the larger portion of the country
bounded on the east by the great lakes, on the north by the British
Possessions, on the west by the Rocky Mountains, and on the south by the
Platte River. According to their traditions they came eastward from the
Pacific, and encountered the Algonkins about the headwaters of the
Mississippi, where the mass of them were held in check. One of the
tribes of this great family, called by the Chippewas Winnebagook (men
from the fetid or salt water), pushed through their enemies and secured
a foothold on the shores of Lake Michigan. The Quapaws, called by their
Algonkin foes the Alkansas or Arkansas, settled on the Ohio, but were
ultimately driven down the river by the Illinois to the region now
bearing their name. A few of the tribes retain very nearly their
original hunting-grounds; the principal migrations of those who have
moved having been southwestwardly, from the headwaters of the
Mississippi to the Missouri.

In 1875 the Indians of this family residing within the limits of the
United States numbered nearly 68,000, with about 1,000 more within the
British Possessions. If the estimates of early explorers are to be
relied upon, they must have lost heavily in population within the last
one hundred years--intestine wars, the aggressions of the whites, and
the vices of civilization reducing many once powerful tribes to
demoralized remnants that are fast fading out of our knowledge by
absorption into the ranks of more powerful neighbors. The majority of
the tribes of this family are settled on reservations under the direct
care and support of the Government, and are fairly on the road to a
civilized future. The exceptions are some of the wild bands of the
Sioux, the Minatarees or Gros Ventres, and the Crows. At the present
writing most of the first-named are at war with the United States
forces, while the two latter are friendly.


The Crows, or, as they call themselves, _Absaroka_, meaning something
or anything that flies, when first known occupied the Lower Yellowstone
and the valleys of the Big Horn and Tongue Rivers, but roamed over much
of the surrounding country, carrying their incursions even to the plains
of Snake River and to the valley of the Green. Were originally one with
the Minatarees or Gros Ventres, but separated from them, and were
afterward driven from their territory by the Ogalallas and Cheyennes,
settling finally about the head of the Yellowstone, dispossessing in
their turn the Blackfeet and Flatheads. Are divided into three bands,
with a dialect peculiar to each, viz: the Kikatsa or Crows proper, the
Ahnahaways, and the Allakaweah, numbering in all, as estimated in 1820,
3,250 souls. Obtaining horses at an early day, they became great
marauders. Irving writes of them in "Astoria:" "They are in fact
notorious marauders and horse-stealers, crossing and recrossing the
mountains (the Big Horn), robbing on one side and conveying their spoils
to the other." Hence, we are told, is derived their name, given them on
account of their unsettled and predatory habits, winging their flight,
like the crows, from one side of the mountains to the other, and making
free booty of everything that lies in their way. In 1851, joined in a
treaty with the United States giving a right of way for roads to be
built through their country. In 1868 a treaty was made, and an attempt
made to place all the Crows on one reservation, but without success
until 1875. They have been much exposed to incursions from some parties
of Sioux at their new agency on the Rosebud as well as at their former
one on the Yellowstone. "The Indians, full of war and revenge, have no
thought to bestow upon farming or other peaceful employment, especially
as the best farming lands of the reservation are most exposed to these
hostile incursions. Six families, however, have been induced to tend
small farms, and have succeeded well. A mile and a half of ditch,
sufficient to irrigate several hundred acres, has been dug, and it is
hoped that another season will see at least a beginning made toward the
civilization of these 4,000 wild but always loyal Crows."

The word Dakota means united, confederated, or many in one, and
designates the tribe from which the family takes its name. They seldom
or never willingly acknowledge the title _Sioux_, first given them by
the French, and now by all whites. There are many theories as to the
origin of this latter name, the most acceptable of which is that it is a
corruption of the word _Nadouessioux_--a general Chippewa designation
for enemies--which was gradually applied by missionaries and traders,
through an imperfect understanding of the language, to the tribes thus
designated. Governor Ramsey, of Minnesota, thought that the word
"originated upon the Upper Missouri, among the early French traders,
hunters, and trappers, they deriving it, in all probability, from the
name of a sub-band of the Ti-t'-wan (Teton), Dakotas, called _Sioune_,
who hunted over the plains of that river, and with whom, consequently,
they came most frequently in contact.

"In Lewis and Clark's travels in 1803, they are called the _Teton
Saone_, and their villages are located on the Missouri, near Cannonball

"At least we find the term _Sioux_ first used in the early maps to
designate a large tribe, with various subdivisions, upon the Upper
Missouri only."

Dakota traditions go back but a comparatively short time, and are vague
and obscure in regard to their origin and early residence, which place
it, however, in the Northwest, above the great lakes. In their progress
eastward they early possessed themselves of the country about the
headwaters of the Mississippi and the Red River of the North, where they
remained as late as 1868, when they were in part dispossessed by the
Chippewas, who were eventually the cause of their removal to the

Up to 1860, the Dakotas were divided into two principal divisions, those
east of the Missouri, who were known as the Minnesota or Mississippi
Dakotas, composed of four bands, viz: The M'dewakantons, or those of the
Village of the Spirit Lake; the Wa-pe-kutes, or Leaf-Shooters; the
Wahpetons, or Village in the Leaves; and the Sissetons, or those of the
Village of the Marsh. Most of these have been long in contact with the
whites, and, having disposed of the greater portion of their lands to
the Government, have abandoned most of their old habits, and devote
themselves to farming. Others of them, however, are restless and devoted
to old prejudices, and cause much trouble to the settlers. The massacre
of the whites in 1862 was inaugurated by the M'dewakantons, the
Wahpetons and Sissetons afterwards joining them.

Along the Missouri, but living mostly on its eastern side, were the
Shauktonwans (Yanktons), or the People of Village at the End, inhabiting
originally the Sioux, Desmoines, and Jacques Rivers, and living now
principally about the mouth of the Vermillion.

The Yanktonais, a diminutive of the preceding name, and meaning the
lesser or the little people of the End Village. Lewis and Clark
described them as the Yanktons of the Plains, or Big Devils, who were on
the heads of the Sioux, Jacques, and Red Rivers. Their present range is
on the Missouri, above the Yanktons. From one branch of this band the
Assiniboines are said to have sprung.

Pabóksa, or Cutheads, a branch of the Yanktons, and ranging above them.

The I-san-teis, or Santees, another sub-band of the Yanktons, living
originally in Minnesota and Iowa, but since lately on the Missouri, near
the Yanktons.

West of the Missouri, occupying the greater portion of Dakota, Wyoming,
and portions of Montana and Nebraska, the general name of Tetons, or
Tetonwans ("Village of the Prairie") has been given to the seven
principal bands of the Dakotas inhabiting that region. Lewis and Clark
placed them on their map in only two principal divisions, viz: as the
"Tetans of the Burnt Woods" (Brulés), and the "Tetans Saone," from
which some suppose the word Sioux has been derived for the whole Dakota
nation. The seven subdivisions as now recognized are the--

1. _Siha-sa-pas_ or _Blackfeet_, on the Missouri in the neighborhood of
the Cannonball River.

2. The _Si-chan-koo_ or _Burnt Thighs_, (Brulés,) ranging on the
Niobrara and White Rivers, from the Platte to the Cheyenne.

3. _Oncpapas_, or "those who camp by themselves," who roam over the
country between the Cheyenne and Yellowstone Rivers.

4. _Minnekonjous_, "those who plant by the water," south of the Black

5. _Itá-zip-cho_, or _Sans Arcs_, "without bows," affiliating with the
Oncpapas and Blackfeet, and ranging over much the same country.

6. _Ogalallas_, occupy the country between Fort Laramie and the Platte,
although they are now confined to a reservation in the northwestern
corner of Nebraska. Have the reputation of being the most friendly
disposed toward the whites of all the Titonwans. Red Cloud, so well
known as an Indian diplomat, is chief of this band.

7. _O-he-nom-pas_, or _Two Kettles_. Live principally about Fort Pierre;
against whom it is said very few complaints have ever been made, they
having always observed faithfully the stipulations of their treaties
with the United States.

In the Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs for 1875, there are
twenty-one sub-bands of Dakotas enumerated, numbering, in the aggregate,
53,044. Of these, there are fourteen represented by portraits of their
leading men, viz:

  Blackfeet, numbering at the present time about       1,750
  Brulés, numbering at the present time about          8,420
  Cut Heads, numbering at the present time about         200
  Mdewakanton, numbering at the present time about     -----
  Ogalallas, numbering at the present time about       9,136
  Oncpapas                                             2,100

  Santee and Sisseton at Fort Peck                     1,000
  Two Kettles                                          2,261
  Wahpeton                                             1,300
  Yanktons                                             2,500
  Yanktonais, Upper and Lower                          8,129

"The Sioux are included under twelve agencies, nine in Dakota, two in
Montana, and one in Nebraska, at all of which, except at Fort Belknap, a
beginning in Indian farming has been made in spite of all
discouragements by reason of unsuitable location and the demoralizing
influence of 'the hostiles.'"

The Ogalallas at Red Cloud agency, who have almost entirely abandoned
the chase on account of scarcity of game, depend almost entirely upon
the Government for their support. Their small beginnings in cultivating
the soil came to naught through the grasshoppers. The Brulés at Spotted
Tail agency have a thriving school with 75 pupils, and cultivated some
lands. At the Upper Missouri agencies but little has been done beyond
feeding the Indians who report to them for that purpose, their attempts
at farming resulting in failures on account of the grasshopper pest. The
Yanktons, Santees, Sissetons, Wahpetons, and other Sioux on the Lower
Missouri and in Eastern Dakota have made more substantial progress in
civilization, many of them having permanently discarded their Indian
habits and dress, and live in houses, and are nearly self-supporting.
The Santees in Nebraska especially have entirely renounced their old
form of life; have churches and sabbath-schools, which are regularly
attended. They have a monthly paper, printed in their native language,
with an edition of 1,200 copies.

    Spotted Tail has long been the chief of the Brulé Sioux, and since
    his conversion from an intense hostility to an unswerving friendship
    for the white people has by them been looked upon and considered as
    the great chief of all the Sioux. The honors of this position are
    equally divided between Red Cloud and Spotted Tail; each is chief of
    his band only, the Indians themselves not recognizing any one man as
    chief of the whole nation; but their great executive abilities,
    oratorical powers, and popularity with both whites and Indians, have
    been the means of putting them forward as the champions of their

    In his younger days Spotted Tail was a daring and audacious chief,
    murdering and massacreing wherever he went. In 1854, he and his band
    attacked a coach, murdered all the passengers, and perpetrated
    horrible enormities on the dead. He was eventually captured, and
    imprisoned for about six mouths in the guardhouse at Fort
    Leavenworth, during which time his feelings underwent a great
    change. Instead of a determined foe of the pale-faces, he became
    their earnest friend and coadjutor in the work of pacification. It
    has been well said of him that "he is worth more to the Government
    than a dozen major-generals, with their armies to back them."

    The following extract from a speech by Spotted Tail, before a board
    of Indian Commissioners at Fort Laramie in 1867, will be read with
    interest as showing his ability as an orator: "My father and
    friends, your Great Father has sent you here to learn what was going
    on. You have come. Your Great Father has sent you to listen. Will
    you listen well, or only listen to half that is good and to half
    that is bad, and not take the whole to our Great Father? He has sent
    you here to hear and talk. We know you have not come with presents,
    but you may have a little money in your pockets that you could give
    them. They are poor and need help. These men here, and the old men,
    women, and children, have not had much to eat since they have been
    here, and if you could give them something it would make my heart
    glad. Yesterday my friends hit me a good deal; but it does not
    matter. I have spoken."

    Spotted Tail is of a large, commanding figure, and his face
    generally wears a pleasant, smiling expression. It is a difficult
    matter to arrive at the exact age of any Indian, and in this case it
    is uncertain, but is probably about 45 years. He has been to
    Washington four times, each time as a delegate representing the
    Sioux nation.

    Generally known as _Little Crow_. Leader of the hostile bands in the
    Sioux massacre of the whites in Minnesota in 1862. He had not only
    visited Washington, and was supposed to be friendly to the whites,
    but had promised to have his hair cut and become civilized; and at
    the time of the massacre the Government was engaged in building him
    a house. Upon the defeat of the Indians, Little Crow escaped into
    the British Territory, where he was killed the following year.

    The massacre spoken of in connection with No. 197 was inaugurated by
    _Sha-kpe_ and his band; some of his young men killed some white men
    while intoxicated, and then, through fear of retaliation, resolved
    upon an uprising and the extermination of all the whites at the
    agency. Sha-kpe's band was re-enforced by the principal warriors
    from the Mdewakanton and Wahpeton bands, Little Crow taking the
    leadership. Before they were subdued, 644 men, women, and children
    were massacred, and 93 soldiers killed in battle.

  297. MA-HPI'-YA-LU'-TA. _Red Cloud._ (Profile.)              OGALALLA.

    Red Cloud, who with Spotted Tail stands pre-eminently forward as the
    exponents of the peace-policy, is the great chief of the Ogalalla
    Sioux, and generally recognized by the military and civil
    authorities as the head chief of all the Sioux. Before he buried the
    tomahawk, Red Cloud was undoubtedly the most celebrated warrior of
    all the Indians now living on the American continent. He had over
    10,000 people in his camps, and could put in the field 3,000
    warriors. When he marched against the settlements he always went in
    force. He takes his name from the number of his warriors, and their
    red blankets and paints; it was said that his soldiers covered the
    hills like a red cloud.

    He is now about 45 years of age, six feet in height, and straight as
    an arrow; his face, which is of a dark red, is indicative of
    indomitable courage and firmness, and his full, piercing eyes seem
    to take in at a glance the character of friend or foe.

    Red Cloud has probably participated in more conventions, treaties,
    and large assemblies of his own and the white people, in which the
    greatest interests were involved, than any other living Indian. "A
    man of brains, a good ruler, an eloquent speaker, an able general,
    and a fair diplomat, the friendship of Red Cloud is of more
    importance than that of all the other chiefs combined." While
    Spotted Tail has a lively vein of humor in his character, and loves
    to indulge in a little joke, Red Cloud is all dignity and

    The following, clipped from the report of the proceedings of the
    Board of Indian Commissioners at Fort Laramie, in 1870, is
    indicative of his earnest and impressive manner:

    "Red Cloud then arose, and walking toward the outside group, raised
    his hands toward the skies, and then touched the ground. Then all
    the Indians rose to their feet, as with uplifted hands Red Cloud
    uttered the following prayer:


    "'O Great Spirit, I pray you to look at us. We are your children,
    and you placed us first in this land. We pray you to look down on
    us, so nothing but the truth will be spoken in this council. We
    don't ask for anything but what is right and just. When you made
    your red children, O Great Spirit, you made them to have mercy upon
    them. Now, we are before you to-day, praying you to look down on us,
    and take pity on your poor red children. We pray you to have nothing
    but the truth spoken here. We hope these things will be settled up
    right. You are the Protector of the people who use the bow and
    arrow, as well as of the people who wear hats and garments, and I
    hope we don't pray in vain. We are poor and ignorant. Our
    forefathers told us we would not be in misery if we asked you for
    assistance. O Great Spirit, look down on your children and take pity
    on them.'"

  244. WAR DANCE.











A tribe of Indians of Dakota stock, inhabiting originally the interior
of the State of the same name. Marquette in 1673 placed them on his map
as the Pa-houtet. Some of the neighboring Algonkins called them Iowas--a
name originally applied to a river, and said to mean "the beautiful
land"--and others Mascoutin or Prairie Nadouessi. In their own tongue
their name is Pahucha, meaning "Dusty Nose." They were famous as great
pedestrians, being able to walk twenty-five or thirty leagues a day,
and the names of many of their chiefs show that they prided themselves
on their walking.

In 1700 they were on the Mankato, and constantly roaming with the
Western Algonkins. Early in the present century they numbered about
1,500, and were involved in wars with the Osages, Omahas, and the Sioux,
losing heavily. Later they became much decimated through the ravages of
the small-pox and other diseases.

First treaty was made with them in 1815. In 1836 the tribe, numbering
992, were removed to the west bank of the Missouri, and from this time
rapidly declined in numbers, many of them becoming vagrants in other
tribes, and others killed themselves by intemperance. By 1846 had
decreased to 700. In 1861 the tribe, now reduced to 305, ceded all their
lands except 16,000 acres, which they subsequently, in 1869, shared with
some of the Sacs and Foxes, their old friends.

Since the tribe has been placed under the charge of the Society of
Friends they have improved somewhat, so that at the present time (1875),
although reduced to 219 souls, they are all living in good houses on
their fertile reservation in Southern Nebraska, and are raising much
more than is needed for their own consumption. They have good schools,
at which nearly one-fourth of the tribe attend, and nearly one-half of
the whole number can read. They stand in the front rank of civilized
Indian tribes.

_List of illustrations._

  385-6. NAG A-RASH. _British._

    Became first chief of the Iowas in 1862, upon the death of
    Nan-chee-ning-a. Has always taken a prominent place in favor of
    civilization and the advancement of his tribe by education and work.
    Has made four visits to Washington and two to New York, the first
    being in 1847, when he travelled from Saint Joseph, Mo., to
    Baltimore in a wagon. Took part once in a great battle between the
    Otoes, Pawnees, Kickapoos, Pottawatomies, and Sacs and Foxes on one
    side, and the Snakes, Crows, Cheyennes, Arapahoes, Comanches, and
    Kiowas on the other, lasting from early dawn until dark. British
    shot 160 balls; 150 of the enemy were left on the field. Age, 68;
    height, 5.8-1/2; head, 22-7/8; chest, 47-1/2; weight, 193.

  388-9. MAH-HEE. _Knife._

    Third chief of the Iowas. When young, lived in Missouri, but
    afterward removed to Kansas. Enjoyed the confidence of the whites to
    a marked degree, and was mail-carrier for some time between the
    frontier posts and the agency. Was among the first to take the lead
    in settling down to an agricultural life. Has always been a
    hard-working man, but at one time was dissipated, and once, when
    under the influence of liquor, killed his father. Is a strictly
    temperate man now, but his rapidly-failing health will soon unfit
    him for his usual labor, and his example in the tribe as an
    industrious man will soon be lost. Age, 56; height, 5.10; head,
    22-3/4; chest, 39-1/2; weight, 172.

  391, 395. TAH-RA-KEE. _Deer Ham._

    Was fourth chief of the tribe until October, 1876, when he was
    deposed for persistent interference with the business of the agency.
    He had been suspended before, but was re-instated by another agent.
    Age, 50 years; height, 5.8-1/2; head, 22; chest, 41-1/2; weight,

  390. KI-HE-GA-ING-A. _Little Chief._

    Fifth chief of the Iowas. Enlisted in the Northern Army and
    participated in the late war of the rebellion, serving two years.
    Was promised the position of a chief if he enlisted, and upon his
    return the promise was made good. Age, 43; height, 5.10; head,
    22-3/4; chest, 43; weight, 192.

  387. KRA-TEN-THA-WAH. _Blade Hawk._

    years; height, 6 feet; weight, 170 pounds.

  392-4. NAN-CHEE-NING-A. _No Heart._

    Was first chief of the Iowas. Died in 1862, aged 65; height, 5.10;
    weight, 170.

  921. A CHIEF.

  922. GROUP, comprising most of the above numbers.


The Kansas are an offshoot of the Osages, whom they resemble in many
respects. In 1673 they were placed on Marquette's map as on the
Missouri, above the Osages. After the cession of Louisiana, a treaty
was made with them by the United States. They were then on the river
Kansas at the mouth of the Saline, having been forced back from the
Missouri by the Sioux, and numbered about 1,500 in 130 earthen lodges.
Some of their chiefs visited Washington as early as 1820. In 1825 ceded
their lands on the Missouri, retaining a reservation on the Kansas,
where they were constantly subjected to attacks from the Pawnees, and on
their hunts from other tribes, so that they lost rapidly in numbers. In
1846 they again ceded their lands, and a new reservation of 80,000 acres
on the Neosho in Kansas assigned them; but this also soon becoming
overrun by settlers, and as they would not cultivate it themselves, it
was sold, and the proceeds invested for their benefit and for providing
a new home among the Osages. The tribe in 1850 numbered 1,300; in 1860,
800; and in 1875 had dwindled to 516. Under the guidance of Orthodox
Friends they are now cultivating 460 acres, and have broken more than as
much again. They raised among other things 12,000 bushels of corn; 70 of
them are regular church attendants, and 54 of their children attend

The Mandans, or Mi-ah'-ta-nees, "people on the bank," have resided on
the Upper Missouri for a long time, occupying successively several
different places along the river. In 1772 resided 1,500 miles above the
mouth of the Missouri, in nine villages located on both sides of the
river. Lewis and Clarke found them in 1804 100 miles farther up in only
two villages, one on each side of the river; near them were three other
villages belonging to the Minnitarees and Ahnahaways.

In the year 1833 these Indians were in their most prosperous state,
industrious, well armed, good hunters and good warriors, in the midst of
herds of buffalo mostly within sight of the village, with large
corn-fields, and a trading-post from which they could at all times
obtain supplies, and consequently at that time they might have been
considered a happy people. In their personal appearance, prior to the
ravages of the small-pox, they were not surpassed by any nation in the
Northwest. The men were tall and well made, with regular features and a
mild expression of countenance not usually seen among Indians. The
complexion, also, was a shade lighter than that of other tribes, often
approaching very near to some European nations, as the Spaniards.
Another peculiarity was that some of them had fair hair, and some gray
or blue eyes, which are very rarely met with among other tribes. A
majority of the women, particularly the young, were quite handsome, with
fair complexions, and modest in their deportment. They were also noted
for their virtue. This was regarded as an honorable and most valuable
quality among the young women, and each year a ceremony was performed,
in the presence of the whole village, at which time all the females who
had preserved their virginity came forward, struck a post, and
challenged the world to say aught derogatory of their character.

In these palmy days of their prosperity much time and attention was
given to dress, upon which they lavished much of their wealth. They were
also very fond of dances, games, races, and other manly and athletic
exercises. They are also a very devotional people, having many rites and
ceremonies for propitiating the Great Spirit, practising upon themselves
a self-torture but little less severe than that of Hindoo devotees.

In the spring of 1838 that dreaded scourge of the Indians, small-pox,
made its appearance among the Mandans, brought among them by the
employés of the fur company. All the tribes along the river suffered
more or less, but none approached so near extinction as the Mandans.
When the disease had abated, and when the remnant of this once powerful
nation had recovered sufficiently to remove the decaying bodies from
their cabins, the total number of grown men was twenty-three, of women
forty, and of young persons sixty or seventy. These were all that were
left of the eighteen hundred souls that composed the nation prior to the
advent of that terrific disease.

The survivors took refuge with the Arickarees, who occupied one of their
deserted villages, but retained their former tribal laws and customs,
preserving their nationality intact, refusing any alliances with
surrounding tribes. The two tribes have lived together since then upon
terms of excellent friendship. They now number 420, living in
dome-shaped earthen houses, like the Pawnees, which are, however, being
gradually replaced by log houses.

The following representatives of the tribe were part of a joint
delegation of Arickarees and Mandans to Washington in 1874:

The Missourias are a tribe of Dakota descent, living on the Missouri
River, their name being one given them by the Illinois, and means the
people living by the muddy water. They style themselves _Nudarcha_. Were
first heard of in 1673, as the first tribe up the river which bears
their name. Became allies of the French at an early day, and assisted
them in some of their operations against other tribes. Were hostile to
the Spanish and also opposed to the ascendency of English influence. In
1805, when Lewis and Clarke passed through their country, they numbered
only 300 in all, living in villages south of the Platte, and at war with
most of the neighboring tribes. They were affiliated with the Otoes,
having deserted their own villages near the mouth of the Grand some time
previously in consequence of their almost entire destruction by
small-pox. The two have ever since been classed as one tribe. In 1862
the combined tribes numbered 708, and in 1876 only 454. Since their
consolidation with the Otoes their history has been the same as of that

_List of illustrations._

  481. THRACH-TCHE. _True Eagle._

    A full-blood Missouria, and nephew of Ah-ho-che-ka-thocka (Quapaw
    Indian Striker), a title gained by his bravery in battle against the
    Quapaws, and who was head chief. At his (Ah-ho-che-ka-thocka's)
    death, the hereditary successor, Good Talker, was assassinated by
    Shungech-hoy and others, when the line of descent fell on True
    Eagle, who became chief in 1860, and held the position of Missouria
    chief in the confederated Otoes and Missourias until 1874, when he
    resigned in favor of his nephew. Is now about 80 years of age, 6
    feet in height, with a stout, well-proportioned frame.

  503. NOCH-PE-WORA. _The One they are Afraid of._

    Is a cousin of True Eagle, and chief of the Eagle band of
    Missourias. Is of a mild, genial disposition, with but little force
    of character. Age, 45; height, 5.8-1/2; weight, 155; head, 22-1/2;
    chest, 35.

  484-5. WA-THOCK-A-RUCHY. _One who eats his Food Raw._

    His father was of the Bear band of Otoes, and his mother of the
    Eagle band of Missourias. He inherited a chieftaincy among the
    Missourias, and succeeded to that position upon the death of his
    uncle, White Water, in 1868, when he took the name of
    LOD-NOO-WAH-HOO-WA, or _Pipe-Stem_. Lacks force of character, but is
    of a mild disposition and well disposed. Is about 5 feet in height,
    and of a well-developed physical organization.

  486. MUNCHA-HUNCHA. _Big Bear_, or _Joseph Powell_.

    Is a full-blooded Missouria. Succeeded his grandfather,
    Cow-he-pa-ha, as chief of the Bear band, in 1870. When a young man
    he lived much of his time among the whites. Possessing more than
    ordinary intelligence, he is at present the leading spirit of the
    Otoes and Missourias in the industrial pursuits of civilized life.
    These qualities have engendered much jealousy in the breasts of the
    older chiefs, who throw many obstacles in his way. Besides his good
    mental qualities he possesses a splendid physique. Height, 5.11;
    weight, 225; head, 23-1/2; chest, 42.

  498. BLACK ELK.


The Omahas were one of the tribes noticed by Marquette in 1673, and by
Carver in 1766, who found them located on the Saint Peter's River. They
were divided into two bands, the Istasunda, or Grey Eyes, and the
Hongashans, and cultivated corn, melons, beans, &c. In 1802, from a
tribe numbering about 3,500, they were reduced to less than a tenth of
that number by small-pox, when they burned their village and became
wanderers, pursued by their relentless enemy, the Sioux. Lewis and
Clarke found them on the L'Eau qui Court, numbering about 600. Since
1815 many treaties have been made with them, always accompanied by a
cession of lands on their part in return for annuities and farming
implements. In 1843 they returned to their village, between the Elkhorn
and the Missouri, and made a peace with some of the Sioux, but their
great chief, Logan Fontanelle, was killed by them not long after. Since
then they have devoted themselves mainly to agriculture, and, under the
fostering care of the Friends, are very much improved in their
condition. In 1875 they numbered 1,005, depending entirely upon their
crops for their subsistence, of which they have considerably more than
enough for their own use. They have three good schools, which are
largely and regularly attended. The older Indians are also abandoning
their old habits and assisting in building for themselves upon
forty-acre allotments of their lands.

    Has always accompanied the tribe on their annual buffalo-hunts, and
    participates in the chase with the men. Speaks three Indian
    languages, besides French and English.

    In Irving's Astoria is a short sketch of some of the romantic deeds
    of Wa-shinga-sah-ba, or Blackbird, a famous chief of the Omahas, who
    died in 1802, which concludes as follows: "His dominant spirit and
    his love for the white man were evinced in his latest breath with
    which he designated his place of sepulture. It was to be on a hill,
    or promontory, upward of 400 feet in height, overlooking a great
    extent of the Missouri, from which he had been accustomed to watch
    for the barks of the white men. The Missouri washes the base of the
    promontory, and after winding and doubling in many links and mazes
    in the plains below, returns to within 900 yards of its
    starting-place, so that for thirty miles, navigating with sail and
    oar, the voyager finds himself continually near to this singular
    promontory, as if spell-bound.

    "It was the dying command of the Blackbird that his tomb should be
    upon the summit of this hill, in which he should be interred, seated
    on his favorite horse, that he might overlook his ancient domain,
    and behold the barks of the white men as they came up the river to
    trade with his people."

    The river has now changed its course, running far to the eastward,
    leaving at the foot of the hill a lake in the old bed of the river.
    The mound which was raised over the chief and his horse is now
    nearly obliterated, "yet the hill of the Blackbird continues an
    object of veneration to the wandering savage, and a landmark to the
    voyager of the Missouri."




  477. A BRAVE.



The Osages were placed on the Missouri in 1673 by Marquette, who called
them the Wasashe; were allies of the Illinois, and near the last of the
past century had been driven down to the Arkansas. Coming in contact
with the French, they became their firm allies, and joined them in many
of their operations against Spanish and English and other Indians; in
1804, made peace with the Sacs and Foxes, with whom they had been at
war, and settled on the Great Osage River. Their numbers were estimated
then at 6,300. The usual succession of treaties ceding lands, and wars
with neighboring Indians followed, reducing them very much in numbers,
until the breaking out of the civil war, when 1,000 of them went South
and joined the Confederacy. Treaties of 1865, 1866, and 1870 provided
for the conveying of their lands in trust to the United States, and for
their removal to the Indian Territory, where they have been placed under
the care of the Society of Friends, and are now making rapid progress
toward a self-supporting condition. They now number 3,001, of whom 323
are civilized, self-supporting mixed-bloods.

The Otoes, calling themselves Watoohtahtah, were known to the French as
early as 1673, under the name of Otontanta; were originally part of the
Missourias, and, with the Iowas, claim to have migrated to the Missouri
with the Winnebagoes. They have long resided on the south side of the
Platte River, in mud lodges, confederated with the Missourias, who
formed one village with them. The two tribes now number 457 souls. Under
the care of the Friends, many are laying aside their Indian dress and
habits, and learning to labor. In common with many other tribes, their
annuities are payable only in return for labor performed, which
exercises a most beneficial effect.

  480. AR-KE-KE-TAH. _Stand by It._

    Is a full-blooded Otoe Indian. He was a leading warrior in his
    tribe, and during the early settlement of Nebraska, when an emigrant
    train had been attacked on Big Sandy Creek, and robbed of all they
    had by a party of Pawnees, Ar-ke-ke-tah, leading a band of Otoes,
    fell on them, and, killing the entire party, restored the goods back
    to the emigrants, for which he gained notoriety, and received papers
    commendatory of this and other valuable services rendered the
    whites. By being a man of deep scheming and cunning, he succeeded in
    gaining the position of head chief of the tribe, while on a visit to
    Washington, in 1854, when the treaty was concluded, in which the
    Otoes ceded to the Government the southeastern part of Nebraska. He
    was deposed from his chiefship in 1872, re-instated in 1873, but has
    been inactive as a chief since, and has lost his influence in the
    tribe. He is still living, about 65 years of age, and 5 feet 8
    inches high, with square, well-built frame.

  482, 492-4, 502. SHUN-GECH-HOY. _Medicine Horse._

    His father was an Otoe, and his mother a Missouria Indian. By
    hereditary descent he became, in 1854, head chief of the Bear band
    of Otoes, and being ambitious, worked himself finally into the
    position of head chief of the Otoes and Missourias. In 1874 he led a
    portion of the tribe away from their reservation, in violation of
    law and agency regulations, for which he, with five others, was
    arrested and confined for a time at Fort Wallace. In consequence, he
    became alienated from the agency and main part of the tribe, and
    lost his position as chief. Has features remarkably coarse; has a
    very stern, fierce disposition; is a deep schemer; would be willing
    to sacrifice almost any interest of his tribe in order to maintain a
    supremacy over them, and has been engaged in many stratagems of the
    kind. He is tenacious of old Indian customs, opposed to improvement
    that makes innovations thereon, and is a heavy clog on the tribe in
    their endeavors to advance in civilized pursuits. In stature, he is
    about 5 feet 9 inches, with a heavy-set, well-developed muscular
    frame; about 60 years of age.

  487, 489, 490. LOD-NOO-WA-INGA. _Little Pipe._

    Is a son of Hick-a-poo or Kick-a-poo, formerly a prominent chief of
    the tribe. The chiefship had been hereditary through many
    successors, and after the death of Hick-a-poo, the present Little
    Pipe, in 1858, took his place. He was one of the followers of
    Shungech-hoy in 1874; was arrested and imprisoned with him, and has
    not since been recognized as a chief. He is of a mild disposition,
    well disposed toward improvement, but quiet and without much
    individual force of character. Has been under unfavorable
    influences, and therefore makes but little progress. He is about 50
    years of age, 5 feet 7-1/2 inches in stature, head 23 inches, chest
    36, and weighs 155.

  488. PAH-HO-CHA-INGA. _Little Iowa._

    Generally known by his more proper name of Baptiste Devoin, is a son
    of John Devoin, who is half French and half Missouria Indian. His
    mother is half Omaha, one-quarter French, and one-quarter Iowa
    Indian. He was partially educated at the Pawnee Mission, at
    Belleview, Nebr.; can read, write, and speak the English language
    tolerably well; also speaks Pawnee, Omaha, and French. He married
    into the Otoe tribe, and has been employed at Otoe agency in the
    several positions of teamster, farmer, interpreter, and miller,
    under former agents. In 1869, he was employed as interpreter for the
    tribe, and has continued in that office until the present. In height
    he is 5 feet 9-3/4 inches, head measurement 23-1/2 inches, chest 44
    inches, and weighs 220 pounds. He is about 40 years of age, and
    quite corpulent.

  495. TCHA-WAN-NA-GA-HE. _Buffalo Chief._

    Is an Otoe Indian, though his grandfather belonged to the Iowa
    tribe. He was, when a young man, a self-constituted chief, leading a
    portion of the Buffalo band of Otoes, at a time when Sack-a-pie was
    chief, and at whose death he became the recognized head chief of the
    band, which position he held until 1874. He is still living; is
    about 80 years of age, in stature 5 feet 6 inches, and weighs about
    160 pounds. He is of rather a mild disposition, though decided in
    his ways; concilitory to the whites, and has gained many friends
    among them.

The Poncas were originally part of the Omaha tribe, to whom they are
related. Lived originally on the Red River of the North, but were driven
southwestwardly across the Missouri by the Sioux, and fortified
themselves on the Ponca River. United for a time with the Omahas for
protection, but have generally lived apart. Were so exposed to the
forays of the savage Sioux that they were almost exterminated at one
time, but after the treaties of 1817 and 1825 rallied and began to
increase. Were estimated then at 750, which has remained their average
number ever since. In 1858 sold their lands and went on a reservation
near the Yanktons, but being too near their old foes, and not being able
to raise any crops, were in 1865 removed down to the mouth of the
Niobrara, where they now have three villages. Are still exposed to raids
from the Sioux, retarding very much their progress toward a
self-supporting condition. Efforts are being made to have them join
their relatives, the Omahas.

The Winnebagoes are a branch of the great Dakota family, calling
themselves O-tchun-gu-rah, and by the Sioux, Hotanke, or the Big-voiced
People; by the Chippeways, Winnebagonk--whence their common English
name--a word meaning men from the fetid waters. The French knew them as
La Puans (the Stinkers), supposed to have been given them in consequence
of the great quantity of decaying and putrid fish in their camps when
first visited by white men. With some others they formed the van of the
eastward migration of the Dakotas, penetrating apparently some distance,
but were forced back to Green Bay. This was some time previous to 1670,
as the map of the French Jesuit missionaries, dated 1671, styles Green
Bay the "Bayo des Puans," and the map accompanying Marquette's journal,
dated 1681, notes a village of the "Puans" as near the north end of
Winnebago Lake, on the west side.[A]

[Footnote A: Alexander Ramsey.]

They were then numerous and powerful, holding in check the neighboring
Algonkin tribes, but soon after an alliance of tribes attacked and very
nearly exterminated them. Became firm friends of the French until the
Revolution, when they joined the English; made peace with the colonists
afterward, but sided with the English again in 1812.

In 1820 they numbered about 4,500, and were living in five villages on
Winnebago Lake and fourteen on Rock River. By a treaty in 1832 they
ceded all their lands south of the Wisconsin and Fox Rivers, for a
reservation on the Mississippi, above the Upper Iowa, but here they
became unsettled, wasteful, and scattered. In 1846 they surrendered this
reservation for another above the Saint Peter's. This proved unfit, and
they became badly demoralized, losing many of their number by disease,
but were kept on it by force. In 1853 they were removed to Crow River,
and in 1856 to Blue Earth, Minnesota, where they were just getting a
start in civilized pursuits when the Sioux war broke out, and the people
of Minnesota demanded their removal. Thus again they were put on the
march, and this time landed at Crow Creek, on the Missouri, near Fort
Randall, a place so utterly unfit, that the troops could not retain them
on it. Out of 2,000 when taken there, only 1,200 reached the Omaha
reserve, to which place they had fled for protection. They were then
assigned a new reservation on the Omaha lands, and placed under the care
of the Friends, and since then have prospered. At the time of their
removal, in 1863, from Minnesota, many of the tribe who had taken up
farms remained, receiving their share of the tribal funds. There were
also last year 860 in Wisconsin, of whom 204 have lately joined those
in Nebraska, swelling their numbers to 1,667. Nearly all of these now
dress in civilized attire, and many of them have taken farms, their
lands being divided into 40-acre allotments for the purpose, upon which
they are building neat and comfortable cottages. There is an industrial
and three day schools on the reserve, which are attended by one-sixth of
their whole number. Their chiefs are now elected annually by the tribe,
who in turn appoints a force of twelve policemen from the Indians to
preserve order.

The Arickarees, Ricarees, or Rees, as variously written, call themselves
Sa-nish, or Tanish, meaning "the people," a common form of expression
among Indians to indicate their superiority. They were originally the
same people as the Pawnees of the Platte River, their language being
nearly the same. That they migrated upwards along the Missouri from
their friends below is established by the remains of their
dirt-villages, which are yet seen along that river, though at this time
mostly overgrown with grass. At what time they separated from the parent
stock is not correctly known, though some of their locations appear to
have been of very ancient date, at least previous to the commencement of
the fur-trade on the Upper Missouri. At the time when the old French and
Spanish traders began their dealings with the Indians of the Upper
Missouri, the Arickaree village was situated a little above the mouth of
Grand River, since which time they have made several removals, and are
now located at Fort Clark, in a former village of the Mandans.

The cabins or huts of the Arickarees and other stationary tribes are
built by planting four posts in the ground in the form of a square, the
posts being forked at the top to receive transverse beams. Against the
beams other timbers are inclined the lower extremities of which describe
a circle, or nearly so, the interstices being filled with small twigs,
the whole thickly overlaid with willows, rushes, and grass, and
plastered over with mud laid on very thick. A hole is left in the top
for smoke to pass out, and another at the side for a door. The door
opens a few steps distant from the main building on the surface of the
ground, from which, by a gradual descent through a covered passage, the
interior of the hut is reached. The door is of wood, and the aperture
large enough to admit a favorite horse to the family circle, which is
often done. These buildings are located within fifteen or twenty feet of
each other without any regard to regularity.

They cultivate considerable land, each family separating its little farm
from their neighbors' by rush fences. Corn is their principal
dependence, of which they raise considerable quantities. The work is
done entirely by the women, the primitive hoe being their only
implement. They generally have quite a surplus, which they trade to the
Dakotas and to the fur companies.

The Arickarees are quite expert in manufacturing a very serviceable kind
of pottery, neatly shaped, and well adapted for cooking purposes. They
are of clay, hand wrought, but not glazed.

At the present time they number 900, and are associated with 600 Gros
Ventres and 420 Mandans at the Fort Berthold agency on the Upper
Missouri, where 13,000 square miles has been set apart for them as their
reservation. They have 500 acres under cultivation, and are receiving
considerable assistance from the Government in the way of improved
implements. Many houses are being built, and the more progressive
Indians are abandoning the old mud-lodges for them.

The Keechies, of whom there are now only a small remnant of about 90 in
the Indian Territory, affiliated with the Wichitas, Wacos, and
Tawacanies; were originally from Texas, and are supposed to be the
Quitzies of the Spanish authorities of 1780. Even at that time they were
a small tribe, numbering about 100 warriors. After the admission of
Texas, were placed on a State reservation, where they remained
undisturbed until 1859, when their presence became so distasteful to the
settlers that it became necessary to remove them. Land was leased from
the Choctaws and Chickasaws, and the Keechies settled on it, building
their villages of grass houses along the Canadian River. The breaking
out of the civil war set them back, just as they were beginning to
prosper, compelling another remove for safety. In 1867 they were
restored to their lands again, and since then have progressed rapidly in
civilized pursuits. Like the Wichitas and Wacos, they are of the same
stock as the Pawnees.

There is but little definite knowledge of the early history of the
Pawnees, although they are among the longest known to the whites west of
the Mississippi. Marquette notes them in his map, 1673, as divided into
various bands. They are supposed to be the Panimaha of La Salle's
voyage in 1688. At the time of Lewis and Clarke's visit, in 1803, their
principal village was on the south side of the Platte. Pike, in 1806,
estimated the population of three of their villages at 6,233, with
nearly 2,000 warriors, engaged in fierce combats with neighboring
tribes. In 1820, three of the four bands into which they have been for a
long time divided resided on the banks of the Platte and its
tributaries, with a reservation on Loup Fork, on the ninety-eighth
meridian. Were then estimated at about 10,000 souls, living in
earth-covered lodges, and much devoted to the cultivation of the soil,
but engaging regularly every season in a grand buffalo-hunt. The
Delawares, in 1823, burnt the Great Pawnee village on the Republican,
and these Pawnees, becoming much reduced in numbers by small-pox soon
after, sold all their lands south of the Platte, and removed to the
reservation on Lou Fork. The means were provided, and many exertions
made to place them on the high road to prosperity; but their inveterate
foe, the Sioux, harassed them continually; drove them repeatedly off
their reservation, and despoiled their villages. This warfare and
disease soon reduced them to half their former number. In 1861, they
raised a company of scouts for service against the Sioux, and a much
larger force under the volunteer organization, incurring in consequence
an increased hostility from their enemies, who harassed them so
continuously, that in 1874 the chiefs in general council determined upon
removing to a new reservation in the Indian Territory, lying between the
forks of the Arkansas and Cimarron, east of the ninety-seventh meridian.
Their removal was almost entirely effected during the winter of

The Pawnees now number in all 2,026, and yet retain the subdivision into
bands, as follows: The Skeedee (Pawnee Mahas, or Loups), Kit-ka-hoct, or
Republican Pawnees, Petahoweret, and the Chowee or Grand Pawnees. There
are also living on the Washita, a small band of affiliated Wacos and
Wichitas, sometimes called Pawnee Picts, who are undoubtedly an offshoot
of the Grand Pawnees. They are under the care of the Friends; have
well-organized day and industrial schools, and are well supplied with
implements and means to carry forward a systematic cultivation of the

    Reputed head chief of the Pawnees, though really chief only of his
    own band, the _Chowee_. His claim was based partly on the fact of
    having been the first signer of their treaty of 1857. Being a good
    Indian orator, and of dignified bearing, he was generally awarded
    the first place in their councils, and led off in speech. In 1820,
    it is said that he put a stop to the custom, then prevalent among
    the Pawnees, of offering human sacrifices, but only by a display of
    great courage. In 1825 he visited Washington with a delegation of
    his tribe, and attracted much attention by his fine presence. Has
    always been friendly to the whites and in favor of the advancement
    of his tribe in civilized habits, although very slow himself to
    adopt new ideas. He died in the summer of 1874 from an accidental
    pistol-shot. Had but one wife, and she survives him.

    Situated on the Loupe Fork of the Platte River, about 100 miles west
    of Omaha. It was divided into two parts, the Skeedees occupying one
    part by themselves, and the other three bands jointly in the other.
    The entire village accommodated about 2,500 people. Each lodge was
    capable of holding several families; they were formed by erecting
    several stout posts in a circle, forked at the top, into which cross
    beams were laid, and against these long poles were inclined from the
    outside toward the centre; all was then covered with brush, and
    finally with earth, leaving a hole at the apex for the escape of
    smoke, and a long tunnel-like entrance at the base. This village is

The Bannacks, Bonnacks, or Pannaques, a small, scattered tribe of
Shoshone stock, roaming over the desert plains of Idaho and portions of
the surrounding Territories, were first found about the Blue Mountains.
In 1833 Bonneville met them on the Snake River, near the mouth of the
Portneuf, "numbering about 120 lodges. They are brave and cunning
warriors, and deadly foes of the Blackfeet, whom they easily overcome in
battle when their forces are equal. They are not vengeful and
enterprising in warfare, however, seldom sending parties to attack the
Blackfeet towns, but contenting themselves with defending their own
territories and houses." They frequent the headwaters of the Snake and
Yellowstone countries to hunt and fish.

They have generally enjoyed a reputation for friendliness, although, in
1866, all but the Eastern Bannacks under Tahgee engaged in hostilities
against the whites.

At the present time there are 600 Bannacks associated with 900
Shoshonees at the Fort Hall reservation on Snake River, where the
attempt is being made to civilize them. There are 200 more at the Lemhi
reservation, where there are also 340 Sheep-eaters, a band of the
Bannacks living a retired life in the mountains dividing Idaho from
Montana, and 500 Shoshonees.

    In 1871, while returning from the exploration of the Yellowstone

    Creek, the camp of a family of the Sheep-eater band of Bannacks was
    accidentally discovered near by, almost completely hidden in a grove
    of willows. Their tent or tepee is made of a few boughs of willow,
    about which are thrown an old canvas picked up in some of the
    settlements. The present of a handful of sugar and some coffee
    reconciled them to having their photographs taken. In the group are
    the father and mother and five children. The Sheep-eaters are a band
    of the Bannacks, running in the mountains north of the Kamas
    prairies, and are so shy and timid that they are but rarely seen.

A roving, warlike, and predatory tribe of Shoshone descent, roaming over
much of the great prairie country from the Platte to Mexico. Their
traditions and early history are vague, but they claim to have come from
the west. They call themselves _Naüni_ (live people), but the Spanish
called them Comanches or Camanches (_Les Serpents_), the name adopted by
the Americans. Procuring horses from the Spaniards at an early day they
became expert riders, which, united with their daring and
aggressiveness, made them noted and feared throughout the Southwest.
Engaged in long and bloody wars with the Spaniards, but were subdued by
them in 1783. Were estimated about that time at 5,000 warriors. In 1816
lost heavily by small-pox. Up to 1847 were variously estimated at from
9,000 to 12,000 in all. Were at one time on a reservation in Texas, but
were driven out of the State, and since then have been unrelenting
enemies of the people of that State. The General Government has set
apart a new reservation for them in the western part of the Indian
Territory and are gradually drawing them all on to it, though not
without much trouble. They now number 1,570 in all, and are divided into
eight bands. Have made a commencement in farming, and have been induced
to send a few of their children to an industrial school.

W. Blackmore, esq., in an article on the North American Indians, thus
describes the Comanche:

"These fierce, untamed savages roam over an immense region, eating the
raw flesh of the buffalo, drinking its warm blood, and plundering
Mexicans, Indians, and whites with judicial impartiality. Arabs and
Tartars of the desert, they remove their villages (pitching their
lodges in regular streets and squares) hundreds of miles at the shortest
notice. The men are short and stout, with bright copper faces and long
hair, which they ornament with glass beads and silver gewgaws."

Catlin says of them:

"In their movements they are heavy and ungraceful, and on their feet one
of the most unattractive and slovenly races I have ever seen; but the
moment they mount their horses they seem at once metamorphosed, and
surprise the spectator with the ease and grace of their movements. A
Comanche on his feet is out of his element, and comparatively almost as
awkward as a monkey on the ground without a limb or branch to cling to;
but the moment he lays his hand upon his horse his _face_ even becomes
handsome, and he gracefully flies away, a different being."

The Kiowas, or prairie men, are one of the tribes that compose the
Shoshone family. They are a wild and roving people, occupying the
country about the headwaters of the Arkansas, but also formerly ranging
over all of the country between the Platte and the Rio Grande. They had
the reputation of being the most rapacious, cruel, and treacherous of
all the Indians on the plains, and had a great deal of influence over
the Comanches and other neighboring Indians. Our first knowledge of them
was through Lewis and Clarke, who found them on the Paducah. They were
at war with many of the northern tribes, but carried on a large trade in
horses with some other tribes. Little intercourse was had with them
until 1853, when they made a treaty and agreed to go on a reservation,
but soon broke it and went raiding into Texas. The citizens of that
State drove them out, but in revenge for the stoppage of their
annuities, they retaliated upon the Texans, and until recently the
warfare was kept up between them. In 1869, were placed on a reservation
of over three and a half millions of acres with some Comanches and
Apaches, but were restive and unsettled. In 1871, under their great
chief Satanta, raided Texas again, but it resulted in the capture of
himself and Big Tree, and their imprisonment soon after. Were afterwards
pardoned by the governor of Texas, in whose custody they were, through
interposition from Washington, and restored to their tribe; but this did
not seem to lessen their hostility, and new disturbances arose, chiefly
in consequence of raiding parties of whites from Texas, that led finally
to the re-arrest of Satanta and his imprisonment in Texas.

The Shoshones, or Snakes, are a tribe inhabiting the country about the
headwaters of the Green and Snake Rivers, and a part of a great family
of the same name, including the Comanches, Utahs, and Kiowas. They
occupy nearly all of the great Salt Lake Basin, to the eastern base of
the Sierra Nevada, and extend also easterly to Texas. The Shoshonees
proper are divided into many bands under various names, the most
important being the Buffalo-Eaters, of Wind River; the Mountain
Sheep-Eaters, of Salmon River, and the Western Shoshonees, near Boise,
separated from the rest of the tribe by the kindred Bannacks, numbering
in the aggregate, with some lesser tribes on the Humboldt, between five
and six thousand souls. Our first knowledge of them was through Lewis
and Clarke, who found them west of the Rocky Mountains on the waters of
the Columbia, but are supposed to have at one time inhabited the
plain-country east of the mountains. James Irwin, United States Indian
agent, in his report to the Commissioner, says: "They emigrated north
about 1781, and proceeded to the upper waters of Green River under a
leader or chief called Shoshone, or Snake. At this point they divided,
one party going over on the Oregon slope, who are now called Western
Shoshones, and have an agency in common with the Bannacks at Fort Hall.
The other party constitute the eastern band of Shoshones, and have
roamed around the Wind River Mountains from the time mentioned until
1868, when a treaty was made at Fort Bridger, that provided a
reservation for them embracing the Wind River Valley. Recently they
entered into a contract with the Government by which they ceded a
portion of their reservation, leaving them a district perhaps 50 miles
in length, and 30 in breadth, embracing a beautiful valley on the east
side of the Wind River Mountains. They now number about 1,800 souls, and
must have diminished greatly since the time of Lewis and Clarke. Their
life was a continued warfare; at first with the Crows and Blackfeet, and
since then with the Cheyennes, Arapahoes, and Sioux, and all this time
contending almost naked with the elements and struggling for

    During the expedition of 1870, the United States Geological Survey
    of the Territories came across the above village of Shoshones,
    numbering nearly one hundred lodges, encamped among the southern
    foot-hills of the Wind River Mountains, where the above and some of
    the following views were secured. They were under the well-known
    chief Washakie, and were on their way to the Wind River Valley to
    hunt buffalo for the winter's supply of food and clothing. Although
    the village had all the appearance of being a permanent
    abiding-place, yet the following morning, before the sun was an hour
    high, there was not a tent in sight, and the last pack-pony with
    trailing lodge-poles had passed out of sight over the hills to the

    The war chief is generally a man of more importance in the village,
    especially when in the neighborhood of enemies, than the chief
    himself. In this instance his tent, situated in the centre of the
    encampment, is adorned with broad bands of black, yellow, and white,
    rendering it quite conspicuous. The war chief, or his lieutenant,
    issues forth frequently to announce, in the far-reaching voice
    peculiar to Indians, the orders which are to govern their actions,
    while within is an almost uninterrupted thumping on drums.

    This well-known chief is a man of more than ordinary ability, and
    his record as a steadfast friend of the white people has come down

    years, but still retains his vigor, and his influence over the
    tribe. One of the above portraits was made in the South Pass
    encampment, and the other is a copy of one made in Salt Lake City.

The Utahs, Yutas, or Utes, as the name is variously written, are a large
tribe belonging to the great Shoshone family, and who occupy the
mountainous portion of Colorado, with portions of Utah, New Mexico, and
Nevada. Those living in the mountains where game abounds have a fine
physical development, are brave and hardy, and comparatively well to do;
while those who inhabit the sterile plains of the Salt Lake Basin are
miserably poor, and spiritless. We derive our first knowledge of the
Utahs from the early Spanish explorers, who came in contact with them on
the upper waters of the Rio Grande del Norte, and who gave them the
reputation of being a brave and warlike tribe. Their country bordered
that of the Navajos on the south (the Rio San Juan now dividing them),
who formerly ranged as far north as the waters of the Grand, but were
crowded back by the Utahs. A continuous warfare was kept up between the
tribes, in which the Navajos were worsted. The Utahs were employed
against them by the Government at the time of their expulsion from their
country in 1863. The tribe is divided into many bands, which are
continually changing, but as now recognized are as follows: Capotes,
Weeminuches, Tabeguaches, Muaches, Grand River, Yampas, Uintahs, Peahs,
Goships, and Mouaches. The tribe now numbers in the aggregate 5,260. The
Pi-Utes, Pi-Edes, Timpanagos, San-pitches, and others in Utah are
kindred tribes.

The Utahs have generally been friendly to the whites, although there was
some fighting in 1859 and 1860 about Pike's Peak, many emigrants
plundered at various times, and stray miners cut off by disaffected
bands. The Capotes, Weeminuches, and others in the southern portion of
the Territory have been more troublesome than those of the north.

Treaties were made in 1863 and 1868, giving them 18,320 square miles of
reservation in the western part of the Territory. The southern portion
of it, known as the San Juan region, was found to be rich in precious
metals, and as it was already attracting a large influx of miners,
additional treaties were made in 1872 for the cession of that part of
their reservation. In 1874 the tribe consented to the sale of about
6,000 square miles for $25,000 a year forever. Much dissatisfaction
ensued from the failure of the Government to promptly carry out the
provisions of the treaty, and from the fact that much of their most
valuable agricultural lands were unwittingly included in the purchase.

"Though holding a hereditary friendship for the white people and
acknowledging the supremacy of the Government, and for the most part
included under agencies and receiving Government rations to a greater or
less extent, no tribe in the country is more averse to manual labor, or
has yielded less to civilizing influences, partly because of the
abundance of game and partly because of their remoteness from

  765-7. OURAY. _Arrow._                                     TABEGUACHE.

    Ouray was born in 1834, in Taos, N. Mex., his father being a Ute,
    and his mother a Jicarilla Apache. He attended the Mexican school at
    Taos, under the tuition of Jesuit priests, and acquired there a
    perfect knowledge of the Spanish language. In 1850, he married, and
    joined his tribe as a warrior, it being then at war with the Navajos
    of New Mexico, and the Cheyennes and Arapahos of Colorado. Soon
    after, in a fight with the Arapahos, his only son was captured and
    carried off by the enemy, and since then he has never ceased, nor
    allowed his tribe to rest, from hostilities against these Indians.
    In 1856, his knowledge of the Spanish language and superior
    executive ability secured him the position of Government
    interpreter, which position he has held ever since, and through the
    same means he has gradually risen from a simple warrior to be the
    principal chief of the nation. In 1863, he accompanied, as
    interpreter, a delegation of his tribe to Washington, when their
    first treaty with the Government was made. In 1868, he again, as
    chief of the Tabeguaches, in company with the chiefs of the other
    tribes, visited Washington, and it was mainly through his influence
    and eloquence a treaty was made, whereby the Utes ceded a large
    portion of their country in Colorado. Soon after his return, the
    principal chief of Utes, Nevava, died, and he became the
    acknowledged leader. In 1873, when the discovery of rich mines upon
    their lands (the San Juan region) was very near involving the Utes
    in war with the miners, he avoided this by agreeing to a cession of
    the lands in dispute, and against a strong opposition from the
    greater portion of the nation. As a chief he is very strict with his
    people, punishing all crimes, and sometimes simple disobedience,
    with death; but he is very kind nevertheless, and has gained his
    influence more through moral suasion than command. He is a steadfast
    friend of the whites, and has never lifted his hand against any of
    them, though some of his people have at times been on the point of
    making war. Ouray is quite wealthy, owning a herd of several hundred
    horses, among which are some famous racers, and also large flocks of
    sheep. He lives at the Government agency in a comfortable house, in
    a somewhat civilized style, and has a carriage with driver, while
    his people live altogether in tents. The Government places great
    confidence in his ability and suggestions, and he has managed to
    keep the Utes at peace with the fast-encroaching people of Colorado.

  768. GUERO.

    Present chief of the Tabeguache Utes. Guero belongs to that class of
    chiefs among the Indians who generally succeed their fathers as
    leaders of a band which hunts and fights in a separate party. He has
    about 50 lodges in his band, and therefore has considerable
    influence. When younger he distinguished himself in the wars against
    the Navajos, but in later years has abandoned his warlike
    proclivities. He is a staunch supporter of Ouray's peace policy with
    the Government, and generally lives at the agency, assisting the
    agent in the distribution of the annuity goods and provisions.

  772-3, 781. SHAVANO.                                       TABEGUACHE.

    War chief of the Tabeguaches, and the most prominent warrior among
    the Utes. The Arapahoes and Cheyennes fear and hate him; he never
    goes on the war-path but brings back a scalp of his enemies. Has
    distinguished himself often by the fierceness of his attack,
    generally going into a fight naked, and has been wounded several
    times in such encounters. In the council he is always for peace with
    the whites, and has used his influence to make those treaties
    whereby all difficulties were obviated. He is an eloquent orator,
    and when speaking is often applauded by his people.

  751. TAPUCHE.                                                  CAPOTE.

    A young chief of the Capote band of Utes, son of Sobita, their
    principal chief. The latter is now very old, and does not attend to
    the duties of his office, his son taking his place. Both are strong
    supporters of Ouray and his peace-policy. Tapuche was the delegate
    of his tribe to visit Washington and confirm the treaty of 1873.

  752. MAUTCHICK.                                                MUACHE.

    A young chief of the Muache Utes, who has during the last few years
    gained considerable influence, and is now considered the war chief
    of his band in place of Curacanto. Was also delegate to Washington
    in 1873.

    An intelligent young Indian of the Uinta band, who was brought east
    by Major Powell, of the Colorado exploring expedition, who educated
    him, and then employed him as a clerk in his office in Washington,
    but died suddenly a short time since.

  769. JOHN.                                                     YAMPAH.

    A young warrior of the Yampah Utes, well known among the people of
    Colorado by the soubriquet of "John," and as a particularly good
    friend of the white settlers. Died suddenly at the Hot Springs in
    Middle Park in 1873.

    The old war chief of his band, and in former days quite noted for
    his independent raids into the country of the Cheyennes and their
    allies. In the winter of 1868-'69 he organized a body of 100
    warriors, and, as leader of these, was attached to the column under
    Colonel Evans, operating against the Kiowas and Comanches, which
    campaign ended in the surrender of these Indians. He is now quite
    old and has lost much of his influence, his son Maut chick
    succeeding him.

    A son of Lodge Pole, a prominent chief and a warrior in his band.
    Was one of a delegation to visit Washington in 1868 to make the
    treaty with the Government. He has not, however, come up to the
    expectations of his people, as, although a young man, he has not
    distinguished himself in any way, so that he remains a simple
    warrior to this day.

  778. CHIPPIN. _Always Riding._



  782. LOVO. _The Wolf._

    Lovo was noted among the Utes for his ability in following the trail
    of man or beast, hunting, or on the war-path, and had gained the
    name of being the best scout. Was frequently employed as "runner" by
    the Government in carrying dispatches, and was noted for his
    promptness in executing these commissions. Is a brother of the chief
    Guero, and died in October, 1874, while hunting on the Republican

  783. RAINBOW.

  784. NICK-A-A-GOD. _Green Leaf._                               YAMPAH.

    A chief of the Yampahs and formerly a man of considerable influence,
    which he has lost, however, through several petty thieving
    excursions which he has led against the whites. He has but few
    followers left, and is one of the few mischievous Utes. In 1868, was
    delegated to go to Washington, and while there was considered to
    have equal influence with Ouray, both being in favor of the treaty
    made that year. Speaks English well, has considerable intelligence,
    and a good knowledge of the customs of the whites, but since his
    repudiation by his tribe he has not come in contact with them much.

  785. PE-AH, or _Black-Tail Deer_.

    A young chief of the Grand River band of Utes. As a delegate of his
    tribe, he helped to make the treaty of 1868 in Washington, and
    signed it; but since then he has never acknowledged it, and, with
    his band, has kept off the present reservation, camping generally
    near Denver. He has about 35 lodges, or 250 people, with him. He is
    a nephew of the late principal chief Nevava, who died in 1868. He is
    quite a young man, very adroit and ambitious, and possessed of
    considerable ability. Has distinguished himself as a warrior in
    contests with the Arapahoes. He has many enemies among the Utes on
    account of his overbearing disposition and pride of birth and
    position, but manages to gain in influence, so that the Government
    has been obliged to establish a special agency for his band at

The Sahaptin family inhabit the country south of the Salish, between the
Cascade and Bitter Root Mountains, reaching southward, in general terms,
to the forty-fifth parallel, but very irregularly bounded by the
Shoshone tribes of the California group. Of its nations, the Nez Percés,
or Sahaptins proper, dwell on the Clearwater and its branches, and on
the Snake about the forks. The Palouse occupy the region north of the
Snake, about the mouth of the Palouse; the south banks of the Columbia
and Snake, near their confluence, and the banks of the Lower Walla
Walla, are occupied by the Walla Wallas. The Yakimas and Klikelats
inhabit the region north of the Dalles, between the Cascade Range and
the Columbia. The natives of Oregon, east of the Cascade Range, who have
not usually been included in the Sahaptin family, are divided somewhat
arbitrarily into the Wascoes, extending from the mountains eastward to
John Day River, and the Cayuses from this river across the Blue
Mountains to the Grande Ronde.


The Nez Percés, or the Sahaptin proper, inhabit Idaho and portions of
Oregon and Washington. They style themselves Numepo, but Lewis and
Clarke called them the Chopunnish. The origin of their present name is
buried in obscurity. Early in the present century they were estimated to
number 8,000; and in 1836, when a mission was established among them,
about 4,000. In the Oregon Indian war most of the tribe remained
friendly and did effective service for the whites on a number of
occasions. In 1854 a treaty was made ceding part of their lands, but
only a portion of the tribe recognizing it, led to a separation, one
party becoming wandering hunters, while the other remained on the

"Of the 2,800 Nez Percés now living, nearly half located on the Kamiah
and Lapwai reservations in northern Idaho, and a few others settled on
lands outside the reserve, are prosperous farmers and stock-growers. The
rest are 'non-treaties,' who, with other non-treaty Indians in that
region, make every exertion to induce the reservation Indians to lease
their farms and join them in their annual hunting and root-gathering

Early in the summer of the present year troubles arose in regard to the
occupancy of the Wallowa Valley by white settlers, it having been
withdrawn in 1875 from the reservation assigned them by treaty in 1873,
from a failure on their part to permanently occupy it. An Indian,
belonging to a band of malcontents or non-treaties under the Chief
Joseph, was killed by some settlers, when they insisted upon the removal
of all the whites and the restitution of the valley to them. Upon the
refusal of the Government to this demand, and further attempts to compel
all the non-treaty Indians to come into the reservation at Lapwai, an
outbreak occurred under the leadership of Joseph, which resulted in a
number of pitched battles, with great loss of life, but were compelled
to retreat, the forces under General Howard pursuing them eastwardly
across the headwaters of the Snake River and through the Yellowstone
National Park, where the pursuit was taken up by the forces under
General Terry, resulting finally in the capture of Joseph and the
remainder of hi s force by General Miles.

The Warm Springs Indians, so named from their location about the thermal
springs in Northern Oregon, are related to the Walla Wallas, and number
187, on a reservation of some 725 square miles, on which are also some
300 Wascoes and Teninoes. The combined tribes cultivate about 800 acres
of the land. They are very well off in live stock and derive some of
their income by lumbering. All wear citizen's dress, many have good
comfortable houses, and support two schools, with an attendance of about
50 scholars. They assisted in the operations against the Modocs in 1872,
raising a company of scouts for that purpose, who rendered good service.

  1057. SEMEO, or _Umatilla Jim_.


The Wascos, like the Warm Springs Indians, are related to the Walla
Wallas, and through them to the Sahaptin family. The name signifies
"basin," and the tribe derives its name, traditionally, from the fact
that formerly one of their chiefs, his wife having died, spent much of
his time in making cavities or basins in the soft rock for his children
to fill with water and pebbles, and thereby amuse themselves. They came
originally from around the Dalles. Are associated with the Warm Springs
and Teninoes on a reservation in Oregon just south of the Columbia. Now
number 263, profess the Christian religion, and are more advanced in
civilization than any tribe in the State. All the tribes of this
reservation are self-supporting, deriving about half their subsistence
by agriculture and the rest by fishing and hunting.

A comprehensive name applied to this as well as to several tribes on the
Klamath River, differing in language and type. Live mainly by fishing
and root-digging. By treaty in 1864 the Klamaths and Modocs ceded all
their lands, reserving a small tract on Klamath Lake, in Oregon, of
1,600 square miles, the Government to pay $8,000 in fifteen years, as
well as other large sums for subsistence. Much of their reservation is
mountainous, only a small portion being fit for cultivation. The
Klamaths did not like the introduction of the Modocs on their
reservation, and it eventually led to the Modoc war. They now number
676, and are quite prosperous. Have a large number of horses and cattle,
but derive their chief support by lumbering.

_List of illustrations._

  975-6. WAL-AIKS-SKI-DAT.

    Known as David Hill, cousin of Captain Jack, is the war chief of the
    Klamaths (the parent tribe of the Modocs), and is recognized as the
    leader in civilization of all the Indians of the Lake country. He is
    33 years of age. He distinguished himself, before the Indians were
    gathered into reservations, as the leader of the young braves of the
    Klamaths in their wars with surrounding tribes, and his military
    record shows that he has never known defeat. He has always been the
    friend of the white man. In the long protracted fight with the Snake
    tribe, lasting over eight years, he was our ally as the leader of
    the Klamath warriors. He commanded the Klamath scouts during the war
    with Captain Jack. Mr. Hill is a christianized Indian, and is a
    member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. His father was the first
    chief who became friendly with the white man. This was in 1843, when
    he met Frémont and acted as his guide.


    (Chief without beads), better known as Tecumseh, is the "medicine
    man" of the Klamaths, and is the descendant of a long line of
    "medicine men." He has had a Damon and Pythias friendship with David
    Hill since his childhood. In his native tongue he is famous as an
    orator. He won great distinction in the Snake war, as Hill's
    comrade; and, with him, is the earnest champion of civilization in
    his tribe. He is also a Methodist and lives a civilized life in the
    reservation. Both Tecumseh and Hill are covered with scars that they
    have received in their desperate conflicts.


The Modocs were originally part of the Klamaths, but recently hostile to
them. Their name is an Indian word meaning _enemies_. Their original
territory was on the south side of Klamath Lake, including some 4,000
square miles. Were early known as a treacherous and cruel people, and up
to 1850 had cut off more than 50 whites. Engagements followed between
them and the whites in 1851--when Wright massacred 41 out of a total of
46--which were kept up until 1864, when they agreed to go on a reserve.
The treaty to that effect was not ratified for seven years, and in the
mean time were induced to go on the Klamath reserve. Were harassed and
dissatisfied, and afterwards put on Yaniax reservation, but most of the
tribe left under two rival chiefs, Schonchin and Captain Jack. The
former settled peaceably near the settlements, while the latter went
back to their old home and became troublesome. In 1872, were ordered
back to the reserve, and upon their refusing to go troops were called on
to enforce the order, the citizens joining in an attack on their
entrenched camps, but were repulsed. The Modocs then retreated to the
"lava-beds," a volcanic region so broken up into great caves and
fissures as to serve as a natural fortification. After several
engagements a commission was organized to enquire into the trouble, and
while holding a conference with the leaders were attacked, and General
Canby and Dr. Thomas were killed, (April 11, 1873.) After two months'
further operations, the hostiles were reduced, their leaders hung, and
the rest removed to the Indian Territory. About 100 who took no part in
the trouble remained at the Klamath agency.

_List of illustrations._


    The famous war chief of the lava-bed warriors, and the greatest of
    their soldiers. He was the most trusted of Captain Jack's braves,
    and the most desperate of his fighters. Rev. Dr. Thomas; who was
    slain at the peace-commission massacre, on the day before his death
    called Scar-Faced Charley the "Leonidas of the lava-beds." He was
    never known to be guilty of any act not authorized by the laws of
    legitimate warfare, and entered his earnest protest against the
    assassination of General Canby and Dr. Thomas. He led the Modocs
    against Major Thomas and Colonel Wright when the United States
    troops were so disastrously repulsed and when two-thirds of our men
    were killed and wounded. Wearied of the slaughter, he shouted to the
    survivors, "You fellows that are not dead had better go home; we
    don't want to kill you all in one day." He has said since, "My heart
    was sick of seeing so many men killed."


    The sub-chief of the tribe and chief of the Hot Creek band of the
    Modocs; although hardly twenty-one years of age, is known throughout
    Christendom as one of the most fearless warriors that the red men
    ever sent to fight the pale-faces. He led the tribal forces that
    suffered most severely. After the massacre he quarrelled with
    Captain Jack; and, with "Bogus Charley," "Hooker Jim," and
    "Steamboat Frank," became scout for General Jeff. C. Davis--which
    led to the capture of the remnants of the Modoc army.


    One of the participators in the Modoc war, but after the massacre of
    General Canby's party, left his tribe, and as a scout under General
    Davis, did good service in securing the capture of the remnants of
    Captain Jack's forces.

  1011. WI-NE-MA, or _Tobey Riddle_.

    The modern Pocahontas, who, at the risk of her own life, saved the
    life of Col. A. B. Meacham, chairman of the Modoc peace commission,
    at the Modoc massacre. The Oregon Statesman truly says: "A truer
    heroine was never born in the American forest than the poor Indian
    woman, Tobey Riddle, whose exertions to save one who had befriended
    herself and people were no less daring and resolute than the
    devotion of Pocahontas. We have nowhere read of a woman, white,
    black, or red, performing an act of sublimer heroism than Tobey
    Riddle, when, under suspicions of treachery, she returned to her
    people in the rocks, with an almost absolute certainty of being
    flayed alive. The description of that event is one of the finest
    passages in Mr. Meacham's speech, and is a fitting tribute to the
    courage and fidelity of his dusky, lion-hearted friend. The
    gratitude, fidelity, and devotion of that poor squaw ought to
    forever put to silence and shame those heartless savages who, in the
    midst of a Christian civilization, are clamoring for the extinction
    of a people whom God had planted where they were found." Tobey is 28
    years of age, and the wife of Frank Riddle. She is honored by all
    who know her.


The Rogue Rivers, so called from the stream upon which they have lived
for a long time, have also been known by the names Lototen or Tototutna.
As a general rule the coast tribes are inferior in physique and
character to the inland tribes, but an exception must be made in favor
of the Rogue Rivers. "The men are tall, muscular, and well made, the
women are short and some of them quite handsome, even in the Caucasian
sense of the word." They are associated with some 15 or 20 tribes or
bands at the Siletz agency, the whole numbering less than 1,500 souls.

_List of illustrations._

  978. OL-HA-THE, or _George Harvey_.

    Chief of the confederated tribes of Indians of Siletz reservation,
    Oregon, lineal descendant of a long line of Rogue River chiefs, was
    captured when a small boy at the Rogue River war between the United
    States forces and the Rogue River tribes of Southern Oregon, and
    carried to the Siletz reservation, where he has lived ever since. He
    is a fine speaker, and has acted many years as an interpreter. This
    office having brought him into close and constant contact with
    American civilization, he long ago abandoned his aboriginal habits
    and religion, and adopted the customs and faith of the whites. He is
    well known throughout Oregon, and is held in the highest esteem. He
    has been complimented by the judges everywhere for his integrity and
    intelligence, and both by his loyalty and education is a living
    proof of the folly and wickedness of the theory that the Indian can
    neither be civilized nor be made the friend of the white race.



The Papapootans, as they style themselves, belong to the Pima family,
and have long resided in the country south of the Gila. Have always been
at enmity with the Apaches until within the last year, but were friendly
to the Spaniards, who, with a few exceptions, have maintained missions
among them continuously up to the present time. At the close of the
Mexican war were Mexican citizens, and partly civilized, but were not
recognized as such by the United States, and were left without an agency
or reservation until 1874, when they were settled on the Santa Cruz
River, a tributary of the Gila, on a tract of 70,400 acres. They now
number between 5,000 and 6,000 souls. Have well-cultivated farms, and
live in houses of their own construction.

The Pimas, calling themselves Ohotama, are a portion of a family of
Indians of the same name, comprising, besides themselves, the Opates,
Eudevis, and Joves, occupying much of Southern Arizona, Sonora, and
Sinaloa. Missions were established among them at an early day by the
Spaniards, but they revolted many times, killing several of the
missionaries. They have long been divided into the Upper and Lower
Pimas, the former living on the Gila, in mud-covered huts, and
cultivating the soil extensively. Have been long associated with the
Maricopas, the two tribes now living together as one on a reservation of
64,000 acres. The Pimas now number 4,100; are self-supporting, wear
civilized dress, and are ready for the privileges of citizenship.

One of the Five Iroquois Nations in Western New York, comprising,
originally, the Sinnekaas, as the Dutch called them, (hence the word
Senecas,) Onondagas, Mohawks, Cayugas, and Oneidas. When first known to
the French, were living on the south side of Lake Ontario, and engaged
in a fierce war with their Algonkin neighbors. By conquest several other
tribes became incorporated with them. Missions were established among
them by the French as early as 1657. In 1763 the Senecas alone, of the
Six Nations, joined in Pontiac's league to extirpate the English. During
the Revolution sided with the English, but made a peace in 1784, and
during the second war remained loyal. Early in the century part of the
tribe settled in Ohio, afterwards removing to the Indian Territory,
where they now are to the number of 240. The New York Senecas still
occupy the Alleghany, Cattaraugus, and Tonawanda reserve of 66,000
acres, where they all live in good houses and have large,
well-cultivated farms, and are in every way a civilized and
well-regulated class of people.

The Wyandots, or Hurons, a western Iroquois tribe, lived originally on
the shores of Lake Huron, where they raised tobacco to such an extent
that they were called Petem, or Tobacco Indians. Were driven west to
Wisconsin and to the shores of Lake Superior, and by the Sioux back
again to the neighborhood of Detroit, where they remained up to the
close of the wars between the United States and England. In 1832 ceded
all their lands in Ohio to the Government, and 687 were removed to
Kansas, where they have since resided, at the junction of the Kansas and
Missouri Rivers. In 1855 many became citizens, and had their lands
divided among them, the others being removed to the Indian Territory,
where they now are, numbering 258 souls. Some of the Wyandots remained
near Detroit, and by treaty with the English government were assigned a
reservation on the Detroit River of 23,600 acres, where they yet remain,
but have declined within the present century from 200 to 72. Their
hereditary king remained with the Canadian band.

The Creeks are known in their own language as the Muskokee or Muskogee
and occupied originally the greater part of Georgia, Alabama, and
Florida. Their traditions say that they emigrated from the Northwest
until they reached Florida, when they fell back to the country between
the headwaters of the Alabama and Savannah rivers. As this was full of
small rivers and creeks it was called by the early settlers the creek
country, hence the name of the Creek Indians, who, when first known to
the whites, were living there. Those remaining in Florida were called
the Seminoles or Isti-semole (wild men). The nation became a confederacy
of tribes speaking other languages, modifying somewhat the original
Muskogee, but who, nevertheless, numbered seven-eighths of their whole
number. Before a dominant power was established in the South they were
courted by the Spanish, French, and English, and were about equally
divided in their allegiance to these nations, but the final success of
the English brought them entirely under their influence. "They took an
active part in the war of the Revolution against the Americans, and
continued their hostilities till the treaty concluded at Philadelphia in
1795. They then remained at peace eighteen years; but at the beginning
of the last war with Great Britain a considerable portion of the nation,
excited, it is said, by Tecumseh, and probably receiving encouragement
from other sources, took arms without the slightest provocation, and at
first committed great ravages in the vicinity of their western frontier.
They received a severe chastisement, and the decisive victories of
General Jackson at that time, and some years later over the Seminoles,
who had renewed the war, have not only secured a permanent peace with
the southern Indians, but, together with the progress of the
settlements, have placed them all under the absolute control of the
United States. The Creeks and Seminoles, after some struggles among
themselves, have ceded the whole of their territory and accepted in
exchange other lands beyond the Mississippi."--_Gallatin._

Twenty-four thousand five hundred and ninety-four were removed west of
the Mississippi, only 744 remaining on their old hunting-grounds. At the
breaking out of the civil war the western Creeks numbered less that
15,000. The tribe divided and engaged in pitched battles against each
other, the Unionists suffering badly, many fleeing to Kansas. They were
brought together again after the war, and in 1872 numbered 13,000, on a
reservation of over 3,000,000 acres in the Indian Territory.

By the report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs for 1876, they were
numbered at 14,000, including 3,000 mixed-bloods, and all wearing
citizens' dress and living in good houses. They have 36 school
buildings, with an attendance of about 750 pupils; over $24,000 was
expended upon their education. There are 20 churches on the reserve,
with a membership among the Creeks of over 3,000. They rank among the
first of civilized tribes.

  105-107. FAMILY OF GEORGE STEADMAN. (Half-bloods.)



"The Isti-Semole (wild men) who inhabit the peninsula of Florida (1836)
are pure Muskogees, who have gradually detached themselves from the
confederacy, but were still considered members of it till the United
States treated with them as with an independent nation. The name of
Seminoles was given to them on account of their being principally
hunters and attending but little to farming."

Were very hostile to the Americans up to the cession of Florida in 1819,
but a treaty was finally made with them in 1823. Other treaties followed
looking to their removal westward, in attempting to carry out which a
war ensued, lasting from 1835 until 1842. Nearly 2,000 had then been
removed, leaving about 300 in Florida, and 145 of these, under Billy
Bowlegs, joined the western band in the Indian Territory in 1858. Had
much trouble in getting settled upon a reservation, locating finally
upon a tract of 200,000 acres bought of the Creeks, where they now
number 2,553--a prosperous and civilized tribe.

    The well-known and famous leader of the Seminoles in the Florida
    war, 1835-'42, but was finally compelled to remove with the remnants
    of his tribe to the Indian Territory.


When first known the Chickasaws were located north of Mississippi on the
Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers. Were mixed up in the early French and
English wars, remaining loyal to the English up to 1783. Operated with
the Americans against the Creeks in 1793. Commenced to migrate west of
the Mississippi early in the present century. Sold their lands to good
advantage and amassed considerable wealth, and were in every way a
prosperous, progressive nation. They purchased a large tract of land
from the Choctaws, a tribe speaking the same language, and affiliated
with them in all tribal affairs. In 1855, on payment of $150,000 to the
Choctaws, they effected a political separation. Like the Choctaws, they
first went south with the confederates during the civil war, but
returned to the northern army afterwards. They lost very much property,
besides a large number of slaves.

Their numbers have not undergone any material change, the latest census
placing their numbers at 5,800. Nearly 2,000 of these are mixed bloods.
Two weekly papers are supported between the Choctaws and themselves.
They are also well supplied with churches, schools, and other appliances
of an industrious, civilized, and prosperous people. They have
intermarried to a great extent with the whites, some of the following
portraits being of subjects having a large proportion of white blood in
their veins.

The Choctaws, or Chahtas, at the time of De Soto's visit in 1540, were
living south of the Chickasaws, and west of the Creeks. Unlike the
surrounding tribes, they were peaceably disposed, and a nation of
farmers, and much farther advanced in civilization than any of their
neighbors. Coming in contact with the French, Spanish, English, and
Americans, they have never been at war with any of them. Commenced
moving west of the Mississippi in 1801, and by 1830 had exchanged all
their lands for other in the Indian Territory. By 1861 had advanced far
in civilization, numbering with the Chickasaws 25,000, with 5,000
slaves. In the civil war they joined first the South and then the North,
losing a great deal in property, and a reduction to 17,000 of their
population. They now number 16,000, of whom two-thirds are of mixed
blood. Are governed by a written constitution; elect their chief every
four years; have a council, consisting of 40 members, and a judiciary,
and trial by jury.

Of the following subjects, nearly all are of mixed blood.

"Very little is known of the early history of the Arapahos, but are
supposed by some to be the Querechos of the early Spanish explorers.
They called themselves Atsinas, of whom, however, they are but a branch.
The early English knew them as the Fall Indians, and the French as the
Gros Ventres of the south. They were then roaming over the plain country
about the heads of the Platte and Arkansas. Gallatin speaks of them as a
detached tribe of the Rapid Indians, which has wandered as far south as
the Platte and Arkansas and formed a temporary union with the Kaskasias
and some other erratic tribes. At the present time (1862) the Arapahos
are divided into two portions or bands. The first portion call
themselves Na-ka-si-nin, 'People of the Sage,' and number one hundred
and eighty lodges. They wander about the sources of the South Platte and
the region of Pike's Peak; also northward to the Red Buttes on the North
Platte. Sometimes they extend their journeyings in search of buffalo
along the foot of the Big Horn Mountains in the Crow country. The second
band call themselves Na-wuth-i-ni-hau, the meaning of which is obscure.
It implies a mixture of different kinds of people of different bands.
They number 200 lodges, and range along the Arkansas River and its

In 1820 Morse estimated them at 10,000, and speaks of them as a warlike
people and often making predatory and murderous excursions on their
eastern and northern neighbors.

The Arapahos affiliate with the Cheyennes, with whom they have been on
friendly terms for many years. Lately, however, an antipathy seems to be
growing up between the two tribes in the Indian Territory, and the
Commissioner of Indian Affairs advises a separation. They are divided
into two principal divisions, known respectively as the Northern and
Southern Arapahos. Those of the north, numbering 1,562, affiliate with
the Cheyennes and Ogalallas at the Red Cloud agency. They have been
ordered to join their southern brethren, and at the present time the
necessary preparations are under way. The Southern Apaches, who number
1,664, with the Southern Cheyennes and a small band of Apaches, are
temporarily occupying a large reservation in the western portion of the
Territory. The new reservation assigned them lies along the northern
border of the Territory west of the Creek and Cherokee countries, and
was purchased from them. It comprises nearly 5,000,000 acres.

But little has been done by them looking toward civilization, beyond
signifying their willingness to have farms apportioned to them and in
sending their children to school.

When first discovered, the Cherokees were occupying the mountainous
country about the headwaters of the Tennessee River and portions of
Georgia and South Carolina, up to 1830. They form a family by
themselves, supposed, however, to be somewhat remotely connected with
the Great Iroquois family. They call themselves in their language
Tsaraghee. According to their traditions, they came to this country
before the Creeks, dispossessing a people of whom there is now no
record. Before and during the Revolution they were friendly to and aided
the English. A treaty of peace was made with them, by which they
acknowledged the sovereignty of the United States November 28, 1785, and
were confirmed in the possession of their lands, occupying a
considerable portion of Tennessee and parts of North Carolina, Georgia,
Alabama, and Mississippi. Commenced migrating to the trans-Mississippi
country as early as 1790, consequent upon the encroachments of
civilization, and in 1818 3,000 more emigrated. As frequent cessions of
their lands had reduced their territory to less than 8,000 square miles
in extent, and also in consequence of the hostility of the Georgians,
they were all removed in 1838 to their present reservation in the Indian
Territory, excepting about 1,000, who remained in North Carolina. At the
opening of the civil war they had progressed to a high degree of
prosperity, but suffered great injury from both parties ravaging their
country, and also in the emancipation of their slaves. Nearly all the
Cherokees at first joined the Confederacy, but after the fight at Pea
Ridge, seeing the result doubtful, 9,000, under Colonel Downing, with a
majority of the nation, abandoned the southern cause and joined the
Union forces; 6,500 adhered to the Confederacy to the end. At the time
of their removal west the Cherokees numbered about 27,000. In 1867 they
were reduced to 13,566, but since then have increased, so that they now
number about 18,000. There are about 1,700 yet in North Carolina, in a
prosperous condition, owning about 70,000 acres of land.

The reservation in the Indian Territory comprises about 5,000,000 acres,
only one-third of it capable of cultivation, and of which they are now
working some 90,000 acres. Their crops for 1875 aggregated 630,000
bushels corn, 70,000 bushels wheat, 35,000 bushels oats, 50,000 tons
hay, 500,000 feet of lumber, &c. They have 63 schools, attended by
nearly 2,000 children, that are supported by a fund of $1,580,000, held
by the United States. Under their present constitution they are governed
by a national committee and council elected for two years. The
executive, or chief, is elected for four years.

The following portraits show the effects of the civilizing influences
they have been living under, and also the extensive admixture of white
blood among them by intermarriage:

  72. BINGO.


A tribe of semi-civilized Indians living in seven villages on the
plateau between the San Juan and Little Colorado Rivers. They were among
the Pueblos visited by the expedition under Coronado in 1540, who named
the region inhabited by them the Province of Tusayan. The Franciscans
established missions among them, but in the general uprising of 1680 all
were expelled or killed. Numerous attempts were afterward made to reduce
them, but without success, and they have remained independent to this
day. They have the reputation of being an extremely kind-hearted and
hospitable people; are exclusively agricultural, raising maize,
squashes, pumpkins, and peaches. They also have many sheep and goats.
Have suffered much by depredations from the Apaches and Navajos. Their
villages are perched upon the summits of mesas, from 400 to 600 feet in
height. Their houses are built of stone laid in adobe-mortar, in terrace
form, seldom exceeding three stories in height, and reached only by
ladders. The women knit, spin, and weave, making fine blankets, women's
robes, and other like articles, which they trade to the neighboring

When they first came under the jurisdiction of the United States, were
estimated to number 8,000. Were almost destroyed by small-pox in 1855
and 1857, and lost many more by the famine in 1867. On both occasions
their villages were abandoned and the people scattered among the
mountains, or took refuge among the kindred Zuñis, and other pueblos.
Are now estimated at 1,500 souls. They use no intoxicating drink; are
industrious and virtuous. The men adopt the usual Mexican dress, while
the women wear a woven tunic and a small blanket tacked over the
shoulders. Before marriage the hair of the women is worn in two large
rosettes upon each side of the head, and after marriage, is worn loose
down the back or rolled up back of the head.

Being entirely self-supporting, they have had but few agents and very
little assistance from the General Government. Their remote and nearly
inaccessible location has also removed them beyond the reach of most
missionary enterprises. Within the last two or three years some efforts
have been made to establish schools among them, supported mainly by
Presbyterian enterprise.

    back, or is gathered in a small knot at the back of the head. The
    Moquis dress themselves entirely in woolen goods of their own
    manufacture, in which they are quite expert, their women's dress and
    blankets forming their principal stock in trade.

    The above are four of seven towns which are collectively generally
    known as the Moquis Pueblos. By a census taken in the spring of
    1877, they were found to contain a population of 492 men, 440 women
    and 672 children, 1,604 in all; of which Téwa has 132, Gualpi 234,
    She-mo-pa-ve 189, and She-pau-la-vay 198. With the exception of
    Oraybi, all these villages are built upon the summits of sandstone
    mesas, 600 feet above the valleys below them, and from which has to
    be brought their water, wood, and everything they raise. They
    possess considerable flocks of goats and sheep, which are secured
    every night in pens along the sides and upon the summits of the
    mesa, as shown in No. 987. Although there is no running water within
    many miles, and consequently they cannot irrigate, yet they are
    quite successful in cultivating corn, melons, &c., usually raising
    much more than they consume.


A general name applied by the Spaniards to several tribes of
semi-civilized Indians in what is now New Mexico. The term _pueblo_, in
Spanish, literally means the _people_ and their _towns_. They were first
visited by Cabeza de Vaca in 1537, who conveyed the first authentic
account of their villages to Mexico, which resulted, in 1540, in the
expedition of Coronado. As nearly as can be ascertained at the present
time, he visited and subdued the Pueblos in the neighborhood of Zuñi,
along the Rio Grande, and the Moqui of the province of Tusayan; but only
occupied the country two years. Were finally subdued in 1586, and the
Spanish retained uninterrupted control, with the exception of the period
of the insurrection of 1680, until the cession of the territory to the
United States in 1847. At the time of Coronado's visit they were as
advanced as now, raising grain, vegetables, and cotton, and
manufacturing fine blankets. Their houses are sometimes built of stone,
but generally of adobe; are several stories in height--three to five
usually--each one receding from the one below, leaving a terrace or
walk. The general plan is a hollow square, although in some cases they
are built in a solid mass, like a pyramid, six or eight stories in
height. In each pueblo there are large rooms, sometimes under ground,
for religious observances or councils, called in Spanish, _estufas_. The
towns are sometimes built upon the summits of high terraces or _mesas_,
extremely difficult of approach.

The Pueblos constitute several tribes, with different languages; some
are now extinct; but those existing are the Zuñis; Toltos in Taos, with
whom are classed the people of Picuris, the Sandia, and Isleta; the
Tiguas in San Juan, Santa Clara, Nambé, San Ildefonso, Pojuaque, and
Tesuque; (the Moquis of pueblo of Te'-wa are said to speak this
language); the Queres in Cochité, San Domingo, San Filipe, Santa Aña,
Zia, Laguna, and Acoma; the Jemez, in the pueblo of the same name. In
the 19 pueblos named there are now estimated to be 8,400 people, the
most populous being Zuñi, with some 1,500 souls, and the least,
Pojuaque, numbering only some 30 or 40 persons. Were recognized as
citizens under Mexican rule, but since the admission of New Mexico the
matter has been left in doubt. In 1858, Government confirmed to them the
old Spanish grants of the land the Pueblos cultivate, averaging about
twelve square leagues to each pueblo. They retain their own form of
government, each village electing a governor, and a council consisting
