The Ojibwe (or "Chippewa") people are a native people of North America. Their traditional dress is made out of deer skin and feather headdresses are worn for ceremonial occasions.
Pet-A-Le Sharr-ro was a Pawnee tribe chief from Nebraska. At the age of 25 he traveled to Washington D.C. on a diplomatic mission and it was on this trip that his portrait was painted. He was honored by European Americans with a medal inscribed "the bravest of the brave" for having rescued a young girl from human sacrifice by another tribe.
