Volume III

"Yellow Hawk (Cheta'-zi) was born in 1854 and accompanied his first war party at age sixteen. He fasted many times and always had the same vision. He saw the image of an old man in the clouds with his body painted blue and his legs red. This old man told him he would never be wounded, but would gain many honors and live to a great age."-Curtis
