Ca-ta-he-Cas-sa-or Black Hoof. A Shawanee chief. A man of renown. He is one of the brothers of Kish-calle-wa--(see No. 29.) He died in 1831, at the advanced age of 95 or 100 years. This portrait represents him when a much younger man. In old age, or some four or five years before his death, he was extremely wrinkled, and although his step was firm, it was short, but his eye was lively to the last. So full of interest is this man's life, and so much of Indian tradition and history are united in him, that it will require all the space allowable in the work before referred to, to do justice to this celebrated chief and warrior. [Pp. 19-20; see entry 04480029 for other work noted in this commentary.]
