Black Hawk, the Warrior Some time during the early part of the Jast century, probably. a wandering tribe of Indians of whom history is silent left the bleak shores of the upper St. Lawrence for" a more cangenntal climate. The sources from which the first part of this sketch is taken. are etiiefly \egiendary: but 9L'Oh ab they are, it is given as it was taken from the lips of one who is characterised by the editor of a small volume called "The Auto- biography of "Bliack Hawk" as a warrior, a patriot, and subsequently a prisoner-Ala-ka- tai-me-she-kia-kiak, or Black Hawk. Toward the latter part of his life this hero of ma.ny battles, when old, poor, and obscure, became desiriouB of giving his story to his white friends. "that the people of the United cttates might know the cause which impelled him t, act as ite had done, and the principles by which he was govemadi." This was faithfully trans- lated by Atttome Le Claire, a half-breed of French, and Indian parentage, whose desevn- dants live in Davenport, la. It must be remembered that, although Black Hawk's story is inrfcermingled wife legends, it ia prabaibly true as regards the emigvtion of the tribes—the Sacs, as they ^ere called- from pitce to place to their final destination, fthe :OOk a-iyer country, in Ill-inois. The -edition of the causes which led to this great event in their history was Iwided down to Hack Hawk, as coming from his great- 1 father—Nana -ma-kae—who, by blackening his I ce, fasting, and invocation to the Great Spirit, appeared to the chief in drea.ms, telling him to fogfc one yoac Abu to Mm brother chieftains and travel to the left of the .00 rising till they could hiear certain sounds, when they would meet e. whito man who would be a father to this people. The sounds were heard and the white man appeared. He announced himself to be the son of the King of France, and said that he also had fasted four years; that the Great Spirit had visited him in dreams, tel/Ling him he would meet his children, the Indian, and their chief. They returned to their nation. The old chief, when he learned of their meeting the white mam, presented the great medicine bag to his son, Na.na-ma-kee, saying it was the soul of their nation, that it never had been disgraced, and he hoped it never would be Nana-ma-kee was a youncr man, and there were ¡;ome dissensions among the people on account Off so much power being given to one so young, but when the "talk" was at its height & violr-nt thunderstorm appeared and the lightning struck iv tree, setting fire to it. Young Natva- ma-kee seized a burning branch, made a fire in th-9 lodge, seated the people around it, who were awed iby what seemed to be a miracle, and addressed them: — ''I am young, but the Great Spirit has called me to take the rank I hold. While my father. the chief, lived I had no wish to take hde place. You have seen the power given by the Great; Spirit in causing that fire. I wish that the chiefs, n.y brothers, may uever let it go out." All were satisfied when they heard; aaid saw that the Great Spirit had spoken and confirmed words by the burninig tree. In the legend of the burning tree one is re- minded of the burning bush out of which God spake to Moaee regarding the children of Israel. In all accounts of the religion of the Indians, tiiaig if mo rapid wlhsce they Me reareaented '+- as worshipping the Great Spirit in any material form of wood or stone. The Great Spirit was immortal and invisible. After a long absence the French Father re- turned, and a. trade waf; kept up for some time with the tribe, exchanging various commodities for their furs and other article?. The British, who were then at war with the French, at last overpowered them and gainer' possession off Quebec. Some of the different tribes joined in the war, and after- wards united their forces agPdlIlst the Sacs and drove them to Montreal, and thence to Mackinac, They met the British Father, as Black Hawk calls him, who helped them and furnished them with goods. They were troubled there wi,th their enemies, who drove them from place to place, till they reached Green Bay, or what is now railed Sauk River. There they held counciil with the tribe or nation of Foxes, who abandoned fheir villages and joined the Sacs. A party of young men had been on an expedition southward, as far as Rock River, said the young braves returned to Green Bay full of the great news of the beauti- ful region they had just left; and .soon after the tribes were en route for the promised land. They were joined by the Foxes, :l:nd from that time the history of the two tribes seems to be closely entwined. For more tha.n 100 years flhey heM undis- puted possession of the Mississippi valley, from t.he Ouisconsin to the Portage des Sioux, near the mouth of the Missouri, about 700 mtiles in length. At that time they had little inter- course with the traders who came to their villages for their peltries. At that time in- toxicating liquors were unknown among them, although afterward introduced by the traders. Black H*wk waa bitterly ouposed to this. at»d ?- sometimes, as said by an eye-witness, "drove in the kega of whisky, or rum, which were furnished them by traders." They held their lauds by their prowess as warriors. In 1804 an event occurred which gave rise to all their troubles with tho whites. One of their number had killed an American, for which he was imprisoned. Four or five Indians went down to St. Louis, where he was con- fined, to secure his release and has re- turn to his family by offering a compen- sation for the life of the murdered man, according to the Indian custom. General William Olarke, the companion of Lewie, at that time waS the general superintendent of Western Ind'i an,? and their affairs. The Government, through Clarke, refused1 the com- pensation, but demanded lands. Black Hawk and t!he other Indians, who were informed of the circumstances, were bitterly opposed to parting with their lands, as t-heee men had no authority for this, bu-t went simply to rescue the prisoner. It is said the men were made drunk, and while in that eondition the sale of the lands was consummated; the prisoners was set at liberty, but as he was running from the gaol he was shot dead by one of the men on guard. All their lands on the east side of the Mississippi river were sold, Black Hawk says, for l,000dols. a year; other accounts say 2,000dols. Judge Spencer, in his "Remi- nisoences," says the latter. He was one of the old settlers of Rock Island. He speaks of Black Hawk a8 an honourable and just man. Black Hawk gays: "I leave it to the people of the United States to say whether our nation was properly represented in that treaty, or whether we received just compensation for the extent of country ceded by these four individuals." A clause in the sale said that the Indians might occupy the lands while they belonged to the Government. Black Hawk's narrative is singularly deficient in dates. He was the grandson of Nana-ma- kee, his father was Tyesa, and he was born on the shores of Rock river, near where it empties into the Mississippi. There he remained till he was fifteen years old, when he won honour- able distinction by wounding an enemy. This was the first event of hip life which he considers of importance enough to record. He was in battle with the Osages. where he saw his father kill a man. and tear off .his scalp. This fired his ambition, and he attacked and killed and scalped his enemy. There were several expeditions against this tribe. In one of these his father was mortally wounded, and after his death Black Hawk fell heir to the great medicine bag of his forefathers. In all hie successes in battle he recognised the aid of the Great Spirit. Finally there was peace am one the tribes, and they settled nuietly down In their villages. It appears that the tribes occunving the land in what is now called Illinois, Iowa, and Wis- consin, had been constantly at war with each other. The Indians found the Rook River and Mississippi country exceedingly attractive. The island of Rock Island was a favourite resort for the young people of the tribes. It was there they hadi their games and dances. They felt that they had found the most beautiful and desirable spot they had ever seen, and deter- mined never to leave it. After their harvests had been secured and the hunter* had returned laden with sooik of tkd ulaaee they gar» themselves up to their favourite amusements. They raised corn, beans, squashes, and other vegetables, and cached them for winter use. A deep hole was dug in the ground, the vege- tables were -p-,iced therein, and covered with earth and bark. Frequently the contents of the cache wer" stolen by their enemies by piercing the ground with their spears. Black Hawk wav3 35 years old when the first American appeared. The Americans had taken possession of the country about St. Louis. The news of this filled the tribes with apprehension, for, asxBlack Hawk natively say*, We had always bad accounts of the Americans who lived near the Indians." The tribes frequently vis.ited St. Louis to see a person in authority whom he calls "our Spanish Father," who always treated them well and gave them provisions. As this account is taken from Black Hawk's narrative, it is not known who was itha "Spanish Father" referred to. Subsequently he refers to "our American Father" at St. Louis. The possessions of the Sacs and Foxes ex- tended as far a& Peoria, and thence to strike the Oaieconsin River eighty miles from ite n.cuth down the river to the Mississippi. They owned also the whole of Iowa. Colonel Davenport, who was an English trader with the Indians, says:—"As nearly as I could ascertain, these tribes came from Canada, from a region near Montreal." They were governed by two sets of chiefs—civil and war chiefs. The civil chiefs settled troubles between tribes. Black Hawk and Keokuk were the prominent war chiefs. Black Hawk was determined to stay in his village, notwithstanding all the land had been ceded to the Government of the United States bE the treaty of 1804. But as the whites wsre cowing in great numbers. seeing the beauty and desirableness of this land so fair and so fertile, they were continually encroaching upon the domain of the Indians. It will be remembered that there wa* a clause in the treaty which allowed the tribes to remair in their homes as long as the land was in the possession of the Government, but as the white people came they settled wherever they pleased, ploughing up the fields which the Indians had planted, and appropriating the land to their own usee. It was determined to remove the Indians, but Black Hawk, profoundly impressed with the injustice of the whiter, determined to await the arrival of the eoldiei-s, which had been threatened, with their "great war chief." Accordingly, when the personage arrived, a great council was held. Black Hawk and b;, c":>iefe listened to the speech made by General II Gains, "the war chief." warning them that they 'had been told to leave the country and go wft-t of the Mississippi. Black Hawk replied I "We have never sold our country; we have I never received any annuities from our American Fatiher, and we are determinec to hold on to our village." The war chief ex- claimed "Who ig Black Hawk? Who Black Hawk ?" He replied "I am a Sac! My forefather was &c! All the nations call me a Sac!" Tbj- savage notfeman of the forest thought this was enough, but was told that the General neither came to beg nor hire them to leave their vil- lage. "I will remove you peaceably if I can, for- cibly if I must! I will give you two days in which to remove," said the General. The ootmcil broke up in confusion. The daughter of aiD old chief waa sent to the fort to ask that her people should reariain long enough to gather their crops in the fields; and another deputation was sent with the same request, but. it was denied. Then a steam- boat was anchored near them full of soldiers. Tlie Indians crossed the river in thr night. To compenseite them, for -their crops, corn was promised them, which, however, was entirely inadequate to their wants. Th" women and children lamented being deprived of the vege- tables. and in the night party went across th^ river to secure vegetables from the fields which they had planted. The whites had no regard for a flag of truce, frequently shooting down the bearer. The war. which terminated with the battle uf Bad Ax, in 1S52, \1"; then a-t an end, after a great reduction 01 the warriors of Black Hawk's band. The American forces were in command of General Scott. i- hae been said that Black Hawk's narrative is somewhat apocryphal, but it is thought it is in the main true. It is a very sad story. Antoine I.e Claire, to whom it was dictated, was a re- speetablr citizen 01 Davenport, held in equal Esteem by whites and Indians. In his affidavit appended to the narrative he says: — In accordance with Black Hawk's request, I acted as bie interpreter. I was particularly cautious, to understand the narra.t-.ve through- out, and have no hesitation in pronouncing it true in every particular." Black Hawk's dedication of tlie work to his csajptor. General Atikineon, is pathetic, and a translation is here given. He was a prisoner at Jefferaon Barracks, and at the time was 67 years old. He sayrs to General Atkinson; — Sir! The changes of fortune have made you my eoeaueror. The rtorj of my life is intimately connected with it part of the history of your own. I have, therefore, dedicated it to you. Bef-ore I set cut on my journey to the land of my fathers I have determined to give my motives and reasons for my former hosti- lities to tho whites, and to vindicate my character from misrepresentation.
