Tribal Battle near Native School

At the Native Settlement we shall be in great need of clothes, to cover the nakedness of the people. Send as well as a few tomahawks not made in the shape of an axe.”

Walker describes a tribal battle near the Native School: “The man who threw the spear that wounded a boy had to stand punishment for his transgressions. 300 or 400 Blacks assembled to do their utmost. He defended himself against a host of spears with a shield about I foot broad and 3 foot long”. His friends then must offend his punishers, one of them had his skull fractured. … They then “made it up… As many were able afterwards, they got drunk with either grog or peach cider.”
