George Catlin, Káw-kaw-ne-chóo-a, a Brave, 1828, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Joseph Harrison, Jr., 1985.66.210
George Catlin described this Brave, along with the Snake (see 1985.66.213), as “fair specimens of the [Winnebago] tribe, who are generally a rather short and thick-set, square shouldered set of men.” The artist probably painted the two portraits in Washington, D.C., in the autumn of 1828. (Truettner, The Natural Man Observed, 1979)
