bullet  General Notes:

This is something I found researching the internet, not sure of the accuracy. They claim there was a portrait made.
The name of "Little Crow" in his own language is
Chatonwahtooamany, or the "Sparrow hawk that comes to
you walking." The French have him the name of "Petit
Corbeau" and the English appellation is a translation
of the latter. He visited Washington in 1824 and at
that time was head chief of the Kahpozhay band, of the
Mundaywahkanton, and a person of some consideration.
He then claimed to be, and perhaps was, by hereditary
right, the head chief of the whole Sioux nation.
