Described by Catlin as a famous and excellent chief (Letters and Notes, vol. 2, p. 123, pl. 221).
Painted at Fort Gibson in 1834, and similar in style to the Cherokee and Creek portraits. Catlin developed a fuller and more subtle range of expression in the Fort Gibson series. Donaldson's date for Catlin's visit to the fort is incorrect.
The subject has a strangely bloated face in the Gilcrease watercolor, and his arms are more awkwardly arranged than in the Smithsonian original. The fan and pipe are not included in the watercolor or plate 221 of Letters and Notes. The subject appears again, full length, in cartoon 65, with another Choctaw.
