Cherokee Warrior with Houston

A warrior poses during the batlle re-enactment at the San Jacinto Battlefield near Lynchburg Texas. The leader of the Texans, Sam Houston, had a long history as a friend to many native American tribes particularly the Cherokees. At the age of 16, Sam, unhappy with farming and storekeeping, ran away from home to live with the Cherokees on Hiwasee Island in the Tennessee River near present-day Dayton, Tennessee. A year later in 1810 Sam returned to his family for a short period before returning to live with the Cherokees. There, he was adopted by Chief Oo-Loo-Te-Ka and is given the Indian name, "The Raven." Because of his knowledge of the Cherokee ways, in 1816, while serving under Andrew Jackson in the Military, Houston was named an Indian sub-agent in Tennessee. In February 1818, Houston led a delegation of Cherokees to Washington, D.C. to meet with Secretary of War John C. Calhoun and President James Monroe. While there he was reprimanded by Secretary Calhoun for wearing Indian dress. In the Summer of 1829 Houston attended a green corn dance and talk at Maynard Bayou, in the Cherokee nation, as John Jolly's representative. There he probably met Tiana Rogers, who would become his wife. Houston becomes very ill with malaria and was treated with Cherokee medicine while staying with Chief Oolooteka (John Jolly), his adopted father. Houston becomes a Cherokee citizen by admission letter issued at Tahlontuskee, Indian Territory. During Mid-December 1829 Houston leaves for Washington to represent the Cherokee Nation. In the summer of 1830-Houston marries Tiana Rogers in a Cherokee Indian ceremony. Houston represented or worked with the Cherokees, Osage, Choctaw and Creeks during his life. They were his friends, family and inlaws; so in the 1830’s when Houston moved to Texas they were often his guests at his homes in Texas, much to dismay of certain other frontiersmen and settlers. Much of the information above comes from the Houston Museum website: www.samhouston.org/ The re-enactor pictured here is an Apache.

26 Beautiful Portraits of Native American Teen Girls From Between the 1870s and 1890s

The Native American Indians are an important part of the culture of the United States. While their people have lived on this land for thousands of years, today their numbers are dwindling. Once, the Native Americans lived on this continent with little discourse and disruption. They were well fed, content, and established. In fact, the men and women usually were placed in typical roles. Each of these beautiful portraits of Native American girls were taken from between the 1870s and 1890s. The images have been well preserved and it gives us a tiny window into the past where we can admire these women, their unique style, and show respect for their lives. Although Native American women often had different roles than the men they were greatly respected. They often had the same sorts of rights at the men in their tribe which is incredible for the time period. In some groups, women were the ones who owned the home and property inside. While it was typical for a chief to be male there were some tribes that would have the women select who he would be.
