Johansen, Bruce E. The encyclopedia of Native American biography, 1997: pages 38-41 (Black Hawk; Makataimeshiekiakiak. A member of the Thunder clan of the Sauk Nation, lived in what is now southern Illinois and Iowa, eventually settling in what was Saukenuk, now Rock Island, Illinois. When white settlers purchased his land and moved into the surrounding area, Illinois governor John Reynolds ordered the state militia to force the Sauk to move. Black Hawk and his warriors attacked frontier settlements in retaliation, and though the Sauks raised a flag of truce, regular U.S. Army troops engaged in a one-sided slaughter in what became known as the Battle of Black Ax. Black Hawk was captured and imprisoned. President Andrew Jackson made Keokuk the principal chief of the Sauks and Foxes. Eventually, Black Hawk settled on land governed by Keokuk near Iowaville on the Des Moines River. Died in Iowa)
