tiful Watahvi-aso ("Biljjlit Star,") Princess of the Penobscot tribe and flower of one of the' .last -famlllei. of-.,
unmixed Indian blood. Longfellow's artful story of "Minnehaha," with its wondrous colorings and its tale
of love and -sorrow, revealed. much of ' the beauty of the aboriginal life and character, but it has remained for
,this modern singer of the songs of her fathers to bring their message to this later generation. ' 5 "M T '
'Her Indian chief tain, father, true to racial traditions, established and kept his family intact at theirtribal is
land home at Oldtown, near the coast of Maine. Far from, resisting those Influences which he knew ' would .at
tract his people away from the old life, he welcomed them, he himself laboring incessantly' for that education and
equipment "which later brought' him wide prominence and membership In the legislature of the Pine Tree 7 State.
,Then, one by one, came pale faced "Hiawathas" and carried off Watahw.aso's sisters, and their children and tbeir
children's chifdren, Americans all, will gather to retell the fast fading stories of their fathers.
...In later years invading hunters sought out. the Penobscot tribesmen to guide them through the Northern wilds'
and paddle their' canoes through the treacherous waters while the women remainingin the tepees wove the gor
geous baskets and beaded the buckskin garments. Watahwaso's father was now a recognized authority in Indian
history,; and folk lore and a speaker of distinct charm and more and more. was called to speak in public Often ac
comiiailying him was his little princess, charming and demure, who with-remarkable skill sang the tribal songs and
thahts and gracefully danced the ceremonial Indian dances. Up to this time her only tutors had been Sisters of ;
"Mercy ih their.' Indian school. '-.; . . - e ; ' ''
; A" professor from Cambridge, inquiring among the Penobscots for information concerning an ancestor whom-'
that tribe had taken prisoner in the French and v Indian war, discovered that Watahwaso's ancestors had befriend-,
ed his relative, . the prisoner. "In gratitude for ttis and in appreciation of the remarkable talent, displayed by the
little princess he arranged for her schooling at Canrrldi,,'. tacludhig' .study" with, masters in musical art
