"Texas State Historical Association: 'The Handbook of Texas - FIELDS, RICHARD...

Richard Fields, one-eighth Cherokee, was diplomatic chief of his tribe in Texas, sharing leadership with Chief Bowl. Fields was born around 1780 and was first noted in 1801 as an emissary of the Cherokee council to United States agents in Tennessee. He appeared as an interpreter on September 19, 1812, at the Council House treaty council in the Chickasaw country. In 1814, during the War of 1812, he served as captain of a unit of Cherokee auxiliaries attached to Gen. Andrew Jackson's army. Fields appeared in Texas around 1820, at about the time Chief Bowl brought the Cherokees into the region; he was leader of one of several Cherokee villages in East Texasqv. Because of his skill and experience in diplomacy, Fields was chosen by the Cherokee intervillage council to negotiate a Spanish land grant for his people. In late 1822 he led a delegation to San Antonio de Béxar to present the Cherokee request to Governor José Félix Trespalacios...

The allies formed a Fredonian Republic that divided Texas between the Indians and the Anglo-Americans. The Mexican government moved quickly to quash the impending uprising, however, and the Cherokee council reversed course and refused to take part in the Fredonian Rebellion. After trial by the Cherokee council, Richard Fields and John Dunn Hunter fled; they were captured separately and were executed in early February 1827.'" [1]
