Portrait of Tish-Co-Han, a chief of the Delaware tribe. The chief's name means "He who never blackens himself." He was known for signing the "Walking Purchase of 1737," a treaty which ceded much Native American land in the Pennsylvania area to white settlers. This print was published in "History of the Indian Tribes of North America with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs" by Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall, 1855. Thomas Loraine McKenney (1785-1859) served as the U.S. Superintendent of Indian trade from 1816-1822 and superintendent of Indian affairs from 1824-1830. James Hall (1793-1868) was a lawyer, writer, and editor who lived in Cincinnati, Ohio from 1833 until his death in 1868. Their book was illustrated with portraits from the Indian gallery in the Department of War in Washington, D. C.
