This is a photograph showing Chief Wiskigeamatyuk, a member of Potawatomi tribe; Edith Roosevelt; Ethel Roosevelt; Agnes Martin; and Chief Kootoose, member of the Potawatomi tribe. The photograph was taken in the Wisconsin woods. The Potawatomi were once located in the Great Lakes region before they were moved to Kansas Territory. On September 26, 1833, the Potawatomi of Illinois and Wisconsin signed the Treaty of Chicago, which ceded the last of their lands to the United States. The United States began removing the Potawatomi off of their Wisconsin lands between 1835 and 1838. Most Wisconsin Potawatomi went to Iowa and later to Kansas and settled on reservations. Despite this, many stayed in Wisconsin. About 200 of the Potawatomi who went to Iowa and Kansas returned to Wisconsin and settled in the vicinity of Wisconsin Rapids. The Wisconsin Potawatomi are federally recognized, but they are included on the tribal roll of the Kansas Potawatomi.

Date: Between 1901 and 1909
