    !NAME: <;,-', Bi-aus-wa (ABT 1720 - BEF 1825) [VR #7]
    !GENEALOGY_COMPILED_BY_VIRGINIA_ROGERS: Broken Tooth Genealogy, #7 (after Kohl,
    p. 147): son of Matchi-wai-jan (ABT 1700), probably born at La Pointe, WI

    !LCCN: E99.C6K713; Kohl, Johann Georg; Kitchi-Gami (Copyright 1860);
    1985 Reprint by MN Historical Society
    "The French translation of his name is given as 'l'homme qui fait secher;'
    the English as 'the man who was dry or needed a drink of water [sic].' From the
    Tales of the Four Lakes, Bi-aus-wah was 'generally accepted as the leader of the
    first successful attacks on Sandy Lake. He was the principal Chief of the Sandy
    Lake village during its first years as capital of the Ojibway Nation. Bi-aus-wa
    was even better known, however, for his civil leadership than as a war chief.'
    Kohl writes 'Loonfoot said that his grandfather had been a great 'jossakid'
    (magician). Once his squaw had been quite paralyzed, nearly dead, but his grand
    father had brought her to life with his breath (en soufflant).' There were
    several chiefs named Bi-aus-wa ad in some of the histories they have become
    confused.
    "It was during Bi-aus-wah's time that the fighting between the Chippewa and
    the Sioux was at its most intense. The Sioux and the Chippewa had been allies,
    at least to some extent, until about 1730. The Sioux occupied the northern part
    of Minnesota and the Dakotas. The Chippewa were closer to the French and
    English fur traders and acted as middle men. They traded for guns, amunition,
    metal pots and pans, etc. then traded with the Sioux for furs. [Add info.]
    Until after 1736 the Chippewa did not have a foothold west of Lake Superior.
    From the Tales of Four Lakes, ::}; Ke-chi-wa-bi-she-shi meaning 'Great
    Marten', 'who was killed near Elk River was said to have fought in nearly 100
    battles and been wounded in many of them. He was Bi-aus-wah's most important
    war chief and lead every major campaign against the Sioux after the Ojibway had
    settled in the Northern lake region of Minnesota.'
    "It has been written that Bi-aus-wah had only one son when he died, and that
    he substituted himself for his son and was burned at the stake by the Fox
    Indians. However I have found ample evidence that the children listed below
    were his children. They undoubtedly had different mothers. It was almost
    unheard of in those days for a Chippewa man, particularly a Chief, to have only
    one wife. They usually fathered fifteen or more children although many died in
    childhood.
    "Chippewa families tend to be interrelated. It was a common custom for
    Chiefs to marry daughters of other Chiefs. Another common practice was the
    'Indian ideal marriage' of first cousins, children of a brother and sister."

    !NOTE: the "Chiefs" referred to here are Metis were who were endowed, by the
    European colonizers, with the rank of Chief; the multiple polygamy and marrying
    of relatives are French Metis and Chippewa customs. In the Anishinabe Ojibway
    tradition it is considered incest to marry any person known to related by
    blood, or to marry another person of the same
    Dodem.

    Notes for Matchiwaijan

    !NAME: /,,( Ke-che-waish-kung (Great Buffalo), who was chief at La Pointe.
    Descendants of Great Buffalo are related to this family.
    "After 1670 the Chippewa were the largest and most important tribe on Lake
    Superior. The other tribes had been decimated by the Iroquois but the Chippewa
    were far enough removed to have escaped their raids. The Sioux had also fought
    with most other tribes around them but had remained allies of the Chippewa. It
    was probably in Matchi-wai-jan's time that something occurred to set the two
    against each other. The Chippewa were hunting and trapping in Wisconsin and
    Minnesota on lands still held by the Sioux but by 1700 the Sioux had started
    their retreat west and fighting between the two was
    increasing.

    Notes for Mitiguakosh

    Mi-ti-gua-kosh (ABT 1580)

    "Stick of Wood" was one of the Chippewa Creole words meaning "Frenchman," said to originate from the wooden crosses carried by the early French Catholic priests in the area being claimed as a French colony at that time.

    Broken Tooth Genealogy, son of Misk-wan-di-ba-gan. He was probably born north of of the Great Lakes in the present Quebec or Ontario. The Chippewa were supposedly into the Northern Peninsula of Michigan and around Lake Huron
    at this time, as well as in Canada. During his lifetime Mi-ti-gua-kosh could have encountered the French who were settling into Quebec.
    "The Chippewa and the Ottawa had early contact with the French. The Chippewa in particular traded furs for guns and other French goods. They then acted as traders with the western tribes, exchanging the French goods for furs. "The name Mi-ti-gua-kosh was translated by Kohl as 'le bec du bois.' The English translation would be 'a stick of wood'."

    Misk-wan-di-ba-gan aka
    Mis-kah-wan-de-bah-gahn
    This person was probably a red-headed Frenchman named Racine

    male, born around 1550, son of Gi-ji-gos-se-kot.
    His name is given by Kohl in French as "l'homme a la tete rouge." This seems to be a correct translation as a man who had over his head a red animal skin.
    At this period the Chippewa were roaming over a large section of Eastern Canada and nearing the Great Lakes.
