THE HISTORY OF IOWA By JOHN ELY BRIGGS UNIT NO 2 HOW THE INDIANS LIVED This is the sixth venture in the series of thirtysix explora tions Into the history of Iowa One topic will appear in this paper each Monday during the school year 2 To Learn About the Indian Tribes of Iowa As short a time as 260 years ago no white man had seen the land that is now Iowa But the Indiana had been living here thousands of years before that Season after season they had hunted and fished along the streams and on the prairie they had chased the elk and the buffalo War parties had sallied forth from the villages and returned with the scalps of many enemies Squaws and their grandmothers before them longer than anyone could remember had planted seeds in the spring and in the fall had gathered the corn and pumpkins and beans Nobody knows what tribes they were The things that have been found in their mounds and on the sites of their vil lages show that they were of two different stocks Some spoke the deep throaty lan guage of the Sioux while others talked in the lisping manner of the Algonkians Tribes that belonged to bothof these great families were liv ing in Iowa when the white men came Who were the Indians of Iowa that the white men knew They were the ones from whom the United States government got the land to sell to the set tlers These were the tribes hat lived here from the time hat Julien Dubuque began mining lead until after Iowa Became a state During that rialf century no less than seven tribes were at home in the woods andon the prairies of owa and two others were here Eor a few years by order of the government It was in 1837 that some Pot moved from their home near liake Michigan to southwestern Iowa and three years later part of the Winnebago tribe was brought from Wisconsin into a strip of country between the Sioux and the Sauks and Foxes It ex tended 20 miles on both sides of a line from the mouth of the Upper Iowa river to the upper fork of the Des Moines river The Sioux or Dakotas as they called themselves lived in skin tipis on the prairies of northern Iowa Minnesota and Black Ha wit Foweshlek Mahaslca Wan eta farther west There they hunt ed and moved their villages where they pleased Often they made war upon the loways Sauks and Foxes They fought fiercely and died bravely Though very gay in their war paint and feathers they were also quarrelsome and cruel It was a band of Sioux led by the terrible Inkpaduta that killed the settlers at Spirit Lake in 1857 Unlike that wicked sav age Wabasha Waneta and War Eagle were friendly to the white people The greatest of these Sioux chiefs was the able arid powerful Waneta who once ruled all of northern Iowa Alongthe streams that flow intotKe river in southwestern Iowa there were three related Otoes Omahas and Missouris They also were of Siouan stock A hundred years ago the oldest tribesmen remembered an an cient tradition that their an cestors had come from the east The loways had stopped at the Mississippi but the others had gone on to the Mis souri giving their name to that river Later the Otoes moved farther north to live by them selves The Omahas came from the valley of the Ohio Trouble followed them all Grasshoppers ate their crops and their hunters returned empty handed Many died of smallpox and others were killed in battle Only a few were left when the white men came In the valley of the Des Moines lived the loways for whom the state was named Big and strong broadshould ered and deepchested they had enormous appetites It was fortunate that they were ex cellent hunters because they liked to eat meat But they were ugly in looks Their mputha were wide and they wore rings in their noses which were none too clean The men fastened on their heads a crest made of a deer tail and horse hair It was the sign of a war rior This fashion they may have learned from the Sauk and Foxes Though brave in battle many wars reduced their number so that they were often defeated and driven away from their hunting grounds but they never lost The noble Mahaska their best known chief and mightiest warrior made peace with the white men and kept his prom ise never to raise the torria iawk against them The Sauks and the Foxes who lived along the Mississippi river were friends For many years they fought together against the Sioux and the oways No one could stand against their savage attacks What they wanted they took Half of Iowa was theirs when the government bought the land for the settlers Though the Banks and Foxes were both Algonkian Indians and lived as neighbors they were not entirely alike The Sauks listened to good advice they thought twice before they raised the war whoop they usually traded fairly and they kept their word But the Foxes were every man for him self Many of them were so greedy that they were willing to cheat and steal In spite of their bad char acter however they were very religious and so were the Sauks Their idea of creation was much like the Bible story God they called Getci Mun ito who sent his son Wis aka to destroy evil and teacl men how to live He saved his uncles and aunts the Indians from a great flood and hav ingobtained fire tobacco ant other comforts for them he went far to the north where he still lives Some day they say he will return Pashepaho and Appanoose were leaders among the Sauks in Iowa but their fame was dim beside the fearless Black Hawk and proud Keokuk Poweshiek Wapello and Taima were the principal chiefs of the Foxes Since the Sauks and Foxes left Iowa they have lived aparl and their old friendship is al most forgotten A few of the Foxea returned many years ago bought some land near Tarna and there they are stil living much as their grand fathers did v ACTIVITY HINTS 1 How many Indian
