Notes Deer Warrior (Itcho Tustinnuggee) (Seminole (Ikaniuksalgi)) was a member of a delegation which visited Washington, D.C. in 1825-826 to reacquire lands taken from them by the United States after its purchase of Florida in 1819. King painted his portrait during this visit. Of particular note in his attire are the trade silver earrings and finger-woven bandoleer which may be connected to an unseen bag.
