Term: Little Priest, Ho-Chunk chief


His Ho-Chunk name is generally given in printed sources as Mo-rah-tshay-kaw. During the the middle of the 19th century he was a leader of the Ho-Chunk Rock River band near located Lake Koshkonong. Historian Lyman C. Draper described him as "a signer of the treaties of Green Bay in 1828 and of Rock Island in 1832. He lived to a very great age and died at the Winnebago village of White Creek, Adams County, Wis., about 1882. In some bout or brawl one side of his nose had been sliced off."
