PRINCIPAL CHIEF OF THE WICHETAWS OR PAWNEE PICTS. This chief, together with his brother, visited the Cherokee Nation in the fall of 1842, and remained until after the close of the International Council, in June, 1843. During his stay he spent his time with John Ross, the principal chief, he spoke no English and having no interpreter he manifested all his wants by signs. He was treated with the utmost kindness and friendship by Mr. Ross, to whom he became very much attached. He is painted as he appeared on the morning of his arrival at Fort Gibson from the Prairies. [P. 21.]
