Principal chief of the upper Creeks. Distinguished only as a warrior, he was elected to the chieftainship through the instrumentality of Opoeth-Le-Yo-Holo, who has great influence over him. He is painted in the attitude of holding a red stick which is invariably carried by him, during the ceremonies of the busk [sic] or green corn dance. It is emblematical of the red stick, or late Creek war. Possessing no merit as an orator or counsellor, his will is easily swayed by his speaker. He is mild and amiable in his disposition and much beloved by his people. [P. 9.]
