"Not Afraid Of Pawnee" illustrates the significance which frequently attaches to Indian names. "Not Afraid Of Pawnee" is a Sioux, and the Sioux as is well known, are unequaled in warlike character by any other Indian tribe, unless it be the Cheyenne. The war which brought the Sioux most prominently to the attention of the white men was the famous Sioux war of 1876-77, the chief incident of which was the defeat and massacre of an entire detachment under General Custer.

Series 79490 About eighty miles from the main line of the Santa Fe and well into the edge of the Arizona desert are the seven isolated villages of the Hopi Indians, built on the summit of almost inaccessible mesas. They are remarkable in appearance, set upon dizzy sites, with quaint terraced houses of stone and adobe, and queer little corrals for the animals in nooks and angles of the cliffs. The Hopi men weave blankets, squaw dresses, and sashes. The women are the home builders and home owners. There is nothing incongruous in these things to them. They are part of the "way of the old" handed down to them by their forefathers.

It is believed that the more primitive method of drilling was with a single flint pointed stick, revolved between the hands, but the drill illustrated, although primitive, has been used for centuries. Turquoise is the only stone valued by the Indians and practically all of the turquoise obtained by the various tribes has been sold or traded to them by the Santo Domingo Indians, near whose village the mines are. There is no better turquoise in the world than that found in this vicinity. Detroit Publishing Co.

Divided Back unused

Description:
Famous American Indian Series 12 Remarkable leader of the Seneca people, born near Port Plain, N. Y., about 1738. His father was a trader of Dutch descent, his mother the daughter of a Seneca chief. As a boy he never knew his father, but as he grew up he learned that his father was a white man, well liked by his people. Cornplanter became a warrior of note, and was highly respected by his people for his kindness and bravery. He was the terror of his enemies and the glory of his tribe. After he became a chief of considerable eminence, he was informed of his parentage, and the place of his father's residence. He promptly took his father prisoner, informed him of their relationship and returned him safely to his family. During the Revolution Cornplanter learned that his father had been taken prisoner by the enemy, and was to be put to death. He dashed angrily into the midst of the savage foe, and with great strength, rescued his father from the scalping knife. After the Revolution, he was commissioned by Washington to make peace between the whites and his people.. Because of his suggestion to his people that they plant more and hunt less, he was called "The Planter" by them, and "Cornplanter" by the whites. He died about 1825.

Description:
Series 8 Sauk leader, born on the Rock River in Illinois in 1780. He rose to command of his people by force of character and at an early age was a member of the Sauk council. He became prominent when made tribal guest keeper, and was quick to grasp the power of the office. He was the leading counselor in the Sauk assembly when the period of the Black Hawk war arrived. The government had made a treaty with a small band of Sauks under the leadership of Kwaskwamia for the Sauks to give up the Rock River country. This led to much opposition, but Keokuk assumed so passive an attitude that he lost both social and political prestige. The result was that Black hawk took active leadership and led the Sauks and Foxes against the whites. At the close of the war, Keokuk was again chosen chief of the Sauks, and honored by both tribes for his debate in Washington D. C., with the Sioux and other tribes, when he established for his people claim to the territory of Iowa. He died in Kansas in 1848, and his remains were later removed to Keokuk, Iowa, and re-interred in the city park.

Audacious leader of the Seminoles in their war with the government in 1835-1837. Born on Tallapoosa River in the Creek country about 1804. As a boy he distinguished himself as a dancer and playing at ball. He was also noted for his independence and for his hatred for the whites. At the age of 25, he was recognized as a leader, and in 1832 rebelled at a council held for the purpose of signing a treaty which would require the Seminoles to move west of the Mississippi. In the war that followed he was mastermind and spirit of his people, fighting at the head of his troops in nearly every engagement and always openly exposing himself, so the enemy would know Osceola was there. Though fierce in battle and defiant in speech, he was dignified and courteous, and had many noble qualities which made him a credit to his race. He was seized by General Jessup in 1837 as he approached Ft. Payton under a flag of truce. He was sent to prison at Charleston, S. C., where he refused food and eventually died from starvation and a broken heart.

Title:
Navajo Indian Silversmith
Divided Back unused

Description:
Before the arrival of the white men in America the use of silver was not general among the natives north of Mexico. Only rarely have silver objects been found in the prehistoric mounds. Discs and tablets of sheet silver have been found in Florida but they are believed to be recent. The Navajo Silversmiths learned their art centuries ago from Mexico an there has been Comparatively little change in either method or tools, the art being maintained in pure form by them. The geometric forms that prevail in their designs usually have significance; a triangle may represent a mountain or an arrow head;a cro9ss may indicate the morning star or the four quarters of the compass.
