Joc-O-Sot
Original name: Walking Bear
Birth: 1810
Death: 1844

Was a chief of the Fox or Mesquakie tribe which resided in the Iowa area. During 1831, he fought in the Black Hawk War against the United States. Following the war Joc-O-Sot made his way east to Cleveland in the early 1830's. Here he began leading hunting and fishing expeditions. He made the acquaintance of a theater promotor, Dan Marble. He joined Marble's theatrical group, touring various cities performing in plays which represented Native American life. In 1844 Joc-O-Sot traveled with the company to England and was received in audience by Queen Victoria. Joc-O-Sot fell ill while in England and, on his own, returned to Cleveland where he died. (bio by: Joyce)

Other accounts state he died of another illness. He returned to Cleveland, his usual home, instead of going back to Minnesota so it's a pretty good guess that part of the legend about going back home is probably made up.
