People
Boone, Jemima -- Captivity
"Refractory prisoners were casually tomahawked in mos cases; but the American Indian has a gentle way with children, always, and these girls were little more than children." If the good-natured Hanging Maw had not been the most tolerant Cherokee ever heard of, the three of them would have been tomahawked a dozen times over. Except for bruises, however, no one was hurt except Betsey Callaway, who was justifiably bitten by the outraged pony." (BAKELESS:126, 129) CHEROKEE SHAWNEE
