Smallchief is a harmless drudge who records the obscure and the elusive. Technologically speaking, he is rushing headlong into the 15th century.

In a 39 year career, Smallchief lived in, worked in, or visited 80 countries on five continents as a chronicler of war, insurrection, and humanitarian disaster. Now retired, he reads, writes, walks, swims, and grows heirloom tomatoes and Indian corn. Smallchief (Ky-he-ga-shin-ga) is a family name dating from 1825 when an American Indian ancestor of that name signed a treaty with the United States government.

Smallchief's contributions concentrate on the Indians of the Americas and the explorers, mostly Spanish and French, who encountered them. He also creates and edits articles about the Boxer Rebellion, China missionaries, refugees, World War II internees, the Vietnam War, women's soccer, conservation and protected areas, and agricultural history.

Having surpassed the statistical average of life expectancy for American males, Smallchief looks back on his life with two regrets: first, he did not discover Wikipedia until 2010 and secondly, he should have used more manure in his vegetable garden.
