An interesting account of the life of the Native American chief, Black Hawk – a legend of the Illinois tribes showing the way they became extinct. Black Hawk earned his status as a war chief leading a band of Sauk warriors, and a band of Sauk and Fox warriors, known as the British Band, against European-American settlers in Illinois and Wisconsin in the 1832 Black Hawk War.

“In the spring of 1832, Black Hawk and his band returned [to an Indian village occupied by whites at the mouth of the Rock River in Illinois and] massacred nearly a score of whites, carried off two young women, and killed several settlers.”. (Graff. Hubach, p. 72)

 

After the war, he was captured by U.S. forces and taken to the eastern U.S. Shortly before being released from custody, Black Hawk told his story to an interpreter; aided also by a newspaper reporter, he published Autobiography of Ma-Ka-Tai-Me-She-Kia-Kiak, or Black Hawk, Embracing the Traditions of his Nation (1833) in Cincinnati, Ohio. This work includes descriptions of the state of Wisconsin as well as Lake Superior and the geological aspects of that region. The first Native American autobiography to be published in the U.S., his book became an immediate bestseller!

“Black Hawk’s narrative is one of the very few important American Indian autobiographies. The work was copyrighted by J.B. Patterson on November 13, 1833, in Illinois.”

 

This 1882 edition was dictated by Black Hawk himself, with interpreter Antoine LeClair and editor J. B. Patterson, and includes three full page portraits of ‘Black Hawk,’ ‘Prophet,’ and ‘Keokuk and son.’
