Naw-kaw--or Wood--principal chief of the Winnebago deputation to Washington in 1828--aged about 94 years. He is of the Car-ray-May-nee family. The great object of the visit of the deputation to Washington, was, to procure a pardon for the Red Bird and others, who were confined on the charge of murder of the Gannier family, at Praire du Chein, in 1817. Naw-Kaw is most accurately represented, when at the conclusion of his address to President Adams, he presented to him the calumet, or pipe of peace. He was a most worthy man, and much respected. Died a few years afterwards. [P. 10.]
