This carte de visite photograph shows three famous Kaw Chiefs: Al-le-gu-wa-ho, who was the Head Chief of the Kaw Tribe; Kah-he-ga-wa-ti-an-gah, Brave and Chief of the Kaws; and Wah-ti-an-gah, Brave and Chief of the Kaws. This photograph was taken at a meeting between Lewis V. Bogy, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Chas. E. Mix, Chief Clerk of the Indian Bureau, and the Sacs and Foxes and Kaws in Washington, D.C. At the meeting, Bogy advised the Sacs and Foxes and Kaws to go to a new home, better adapted to their condition, in the valley of the Canadian River.
