Little Crow--A Sioux Chief. The name of this individual in his own language is "Chanton-wah-tood-many," or the sparrow hawk that comes to you walking. The French call him Petit Corbeau, the English call him Little Crow, which is the interpretation of his French name. He visited Washington in 1824, and was at that time head chief of the Kah-poez-has band of the Mundaywahkanton, and a person of some note. He claims to be, and perhaps is, by heradity [sic] right, the head chief of the whole Sioux nation. But he has fallen into disrepute, and is at this time without any influence even in his own band. He is cunning, artful and treacherous, he is no warrior, but a good hunter. The name Kahpozhay, or Kapoja, signifies light, and is applied to this band to indicate that they are more active than the other branches of the Sioux or Dacota family. The Little Crow, has a son named Big Thunder, a fierce and terrible fellow. [Pp. 14-15.]
