This photograph depicts Keokuk, or "the Watchful Fox," a chief of the Sac and Fox tribe. The Sac and Fox tribes had moved to Kansas (then called Indian Territory) after they had ceded their lands in Illinois to the U. S. government in 1804 and 1816. The photo is undated.

Date: Between 1816 and 1854

Can be used in tandem with Sac and Fox sources, sources relating to Keokuk, and as an example of native clothing. This source is particularly useful because images from this time period are scarce.
