Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains

 Native American Nations | Indian Heroes and Chiefs                    

 

By
Charles A. Eastman (Ohiyesa)

      Every age, every race, has its leaders and heroes. There were over sixty distinct tribes of Indians on this continent, each of which boasted its notable men. The names and deeds of some of these men will live in American history, yet in the true sense they are unknown, because misunderstood. I should like to present some of the greatest chiefs of modern times in the light of the native character and ideals, believing that the American people will gladly do them tardy justice.
