Black Eagle
Birth: unknown
Death: Oct., 1831

Nez Perce Indian Warrior. He was part of a four-man mission that traveled 2,000 miles from Idaho to St. Louis to meet explorer William Clark in order to learn more about the White man's Bible. Clark had befriended the Nez Perce tribe 25 years earlier on his and Meriwether Lewis' Corps of Discovery expedition. The Nez Perce people had given the starving explorers much needed supplies. He died a few weeks after meeting with Clark, and received Catholic rites and the Christian name of Paul at the time of his burial in the fall of 1831. Fellow warrior Speaking Eagle also died at the same time and is buried in the same mass grave. The other two Indians (Rabbit-Skin-Leggings and No-Horns-On-His-Head) died on the return journey and their whereabouts are not known. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
