Scope and Contents:
In December 1805, Thomas Jefferson hosted a delegation to Washington DC of representatives of Indian tribes from Louisiana Territory. Early in the new year (1806), several members of the delegation traveled to Philadelphia. There they visited Charles Willson Peale's Museum and some had their silhouettes taken by Peale's physiognotrace.

Included are images of Joseph Barron (Baume), interpreter; Paul Choteau, interpreter, an Osage; Shegagahega, a Pawnee; Pagesgatse, a Pawnee; Tahawarra, perhaps a Missouria; Macapaba, perhaps a Missouria, Waconsca, perhaps a Kansa; and Sagessage ("The Wind"), an Osage. There are two items labeled number 10, one of which is possibly Mechenecka, a Sac.

The other silhouettes are undated. They include two labeled Titian R. Peale, and one labled "Black Hawk's son".
