Charles Bird King, Pushmataha, Chief of the Choctaw Tribe,, 1824, from History of the Indian Tribes of North America

Push-Ma-Ta-Ha is dressed in his army uniform showing the assimilation that the Natives ultimately went through to become “proper citizens.” Few Choctaws from the early 1800’s are better known than Push-Ma-Ta-Ha. He negotiated several well-publicized treaties with the United States and led Choctaws in support of the Americans during the War of 1812. He is now buried in the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C
