Musquakee Chief

 

Wapella was born in the year 1787 and was one of the famous chiefs of the Sauk and Fox.

In the year 1837 he was a member of the delegation which made a journey to the East-coast where a peace-conference took place between them and their enemies the Santee (Sioux).

They signed 5 contracts but the result was not what they wanted it to be.

Finally both tribes lost more then they expected.
