PASHEEPAHO, LITTLE STABBING CHIEF

George Catlin drew Pasheepaho, Little Stabbing Chief, during a treaty signing at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin in 1833.  At that time, Keokuk was the acknowledged chief of the Sac Fox tribe.  By the time Catlin drew his portrait, the aged Pasheepaho had resigned his office.  He is shown holding his pipe, shield, society staff and wearing a bustle composed of four raven skins, a number that holds many symbolic associations for many tribes.
