Attakullakulla (A-da-gul-ka-lu) CHIPPEWA aka Little Carpenter "White Owl" - 1/4th Shawnee-Cherokee Metis -

He married NayO nay (is how we said it) Ollie Nionee OCONASTOTA of the Paint Clan in 1730, Overhills, Great Tellico, Tennessee b. 1720. (his cousin), 1/2 Shawnee-Cherokee-Creek dau of Oconostota Groundhogsausage and Unknown PAINTCLAN/?Woman Clan

Attakullakulla was originally Miskwakihha Indian, one of the divisions of the Algonquin Nipising Indians. He had been captured as an infant and then adopted into the Cherokee Tribe. This account was given by Turtle At Home, his son in 1809 to Maj. John Norton.

Born 1700 - 1712

Attakullakulla as a youth visited England in 1730. The youngest of the seven (who went) -Okoonaka, the White Owl, although some English newspapers persisted in calling him Captain Owean Nakan. He was probably in his twenties and was of remarkable small stature, slender and delicate frame.
********************
Attakullakulla, he was one of the few Cherokee leaders who depended not on words but on actions to secure a following. He commanded respect beacuse of his courage and fighting ability, which he ably demontrated in 1755 by netting five French prisoners in an expedition to the Illinois-Wasbash region, and by leading the unprecedented number of five hundred warriors to a decisive victory at Taliwa over the creeks, who were compelled to vacate nothern Georgia. (Supra, Jounal of Cherokee Studies.) The date of Attakullakulla's birth is not known for certain, but was probably not before 1700 nor after 1712. Attakullakulla himself recalled that he was but a youth when he visited England in 1730. The youngest of the seven (who went) was Okoonaka, the White Owl, although some English newspapers persisted in calling him Captain Owean Nakan. He was probably in his twenties and was of remarkable small stature, slender and delicate frame. Although he was the youngest of the seven, he was related to the family from which many Cherokee leaders were drawn and was thus destined for greatness if he showed the mettle to grasp the opportunity which circumstances presented to hiim. He did, and he became Attakullakulla, whose voice was infulential, and often dominate, in the councils of the Cherokee Nation for nearly 50 years. ***Journal of Cherokee Studies, Vol. 3, No. 1, Winter 1978
