The American Indian in Postage Stamps

Teacher Jennifer says: As you look at the stamps in online exhibit below, find the American Indian Leader's name and tribe.  Check if the tribe is listed as an answer to USCIS 100:87

Smithsonian Postal Museum: The American Indian in Postage Stamps: Profiles in Leadership, Accomplishment and Cultural Celebration (virtual exhibit)

Historic American Indian leaders honored here on postage stamps, exemplify a wide range of reaction to the radical confrontations that would drastically affect the traditions and culture of their peoples. Some chose resistance and war; others chose a path of adaptation and accommodation to a new way of life. In all cases, these leaders of nations were elder representatives of huge extended families, and their commitment to future generations was paramount.
