Smallchief has lived or worked in more than 30 countries on five continents as a chronicler of war, insurrection, and humanitarian disaster. He retired recently and now reads, writes, walks, grows organic vegetables, and putters around his mountain estate in an exclusive gated community -- the gate being a barbed wire fence and a rocky road deterring all but the most determined visitors. 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, the Memsahib, and Yellow Cur III

His contributions focus on the Indians of the Southwest and Great Plains of the United States and the explorers, mostly Spanish and French, who first encountered them. He also has interest in the Boxer Rebellion, China missionaries, refugees, World War II internees, the Vietnam War, women's soccer, conservation and protected areas, and agricultural history.

For fantastic work creating Battle of Cottonwood which I just cleared through AfC. But it could have been awarded for any of dozens of other excellent articles, I think. Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:45, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
