LOGAN FONTENELLE

Shon-ga-ska (White Horse) was the son of a French-American fur trader

and the daughter of Big Elk, principal chief of the Omaha tribe on the upper Missouri River.

Having served as interpreter and signatory to a treaty that represented

a 4,000,000 acre cessation of land by the tribe,

he is remembered for both the tribal struggle to assimilate to an ever-encroaching white culture,

and the story of many biracial children: seeking acceptance on either side of their lineage.
