Portraits of Little Turtle

Posted in Primary Sources and Artifacts

These are portraits of Little Turtle, also known as Mich-I-kin-I-Qua, a chief of the Miami Tribe, created around 1790-1812. Chief Little Turtle and Shawnee chief Tecumseh led the Miami and Shawnee people to resist white settlers in the western part of Ohio. They successfully defeated United States soldiers led by Josiah Harmar in October 1790 and soldiers led by Arthur St. Clair in 1791. An attack on Fort Recovery against General Anthony Wayne failed in 1794 and Little Turtle sought negotiations with the settlers through the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. The treaty ceded most of Ohio to the settlers and ended the Northwest Indian War, also known as Little Turtle's War. Ohio Historical Society Image AL02707 (left) AL02985 (right).
