KEOKUK, Chief of the Sauks and Foxes
This colorful portrait of Keokuk, Chief of the
Sauks and Foxes, with a son at his feet, displays the accoutrements of
native-American chiefdom. This portrait comes matted and with the biography from
"The Indian Tribes of North America" which includes this description:
Keokuk is, in all respects, a magnificent savage. Bold,
enterprising, and impulsive, he is also politic, and possesses an intimate
knowledge of human nature, and a tact which enables him to bring the resources
of his mind into prompt operation. Successful in his undertakings, yet there is
a freshness and enthusiasm about him that throw a tinge of romance over many of
his deeds, and would indicate a mind acting for effect rather than from the
dictates of policy, if there were not abundant proofs of the calm judgment which
forms the basis of his character.
Below is the start of the multi-page biography of
Keokuk and his tribes which is included.
Below is the print in a green, 9 x 12 inch mat.
