Great Indian Chiefs.
Brief biographies and pen and ink portraits of over 40 chiefs and other distinguised American Indians comprise this book. Each page contains a full page portrait and a biography that notes tribal affiliation, important dates, geographical location, major accomplishments, and dealings with other tribes, white settlers, and the United States or British governments. The original works from which the portraits are drawn are noted and include paintings and photographs from the Smithsonian Institute, the New York Historical Society, and other collections. Many portraits are full-body poses and show costumes and cultural artifacts in detail. Leaders represented in the book include Pocahontas and Chief Powhatan of the Algonquian tribes in Virginia, King Phillip of the Wampanoag in New England, Ostenaco of the Cherokee nation, Joseph Brant of the Mohawk tribe, Little Turtle of the Miami Indians, and Sacagewea of the Shoshone tribe.
