McKenney and Hall Indian Print

WABAUNSEE, A Potawatomi Chief

This Potawatomi Chief comes decked out in a blue uniform with gold shoulder decoration and portrait amulet with a striking headdress and matching earrings.

Wikipedia has this to say about the Potawatomi tribe:

The Potawatomi (also spelled Pottawatomie or Pottawatomi) are an American Indian people of the upper Mississippi River region. They traditionally speak the Potawatomi language a member of the Algonquian family.

The Potawatomi were part of a long term alliance with the Ojibwe and Ottawa, called the Council of Three Fires and which fought the Iroquois Confederacy and the Sioux. In the Council of Three Fires, Potawatomi were considered the "youngest Brother" and the "Keeper of the Fire".

Potawatomi warriors were an important part of Tecumseh's Confederacy and took part in Tecumseh's War, the War of 1812 and the Peoria War, albeit their allegiance switched repeatedly between the English and the Americans.

The McKenney and Hall multi-page biography of WABAUNSEE is attached to the back of the frame so you can learn more about him and his tribe when you get the print.

Below is how the print looks framed.
