Elias Boudinot (Buck Watie), 180?-1839
Elias Boudinot, a member of the Cherokee, was a writer and newspaper editor. Born in Georgia in the early 1800’s, as Gallegina (aka Buck) Watie, he is probably best known for his work as editor of the Cherokee Phoenix. His advocacy of the Cherokee removal from Georgia in the 1830’s eventually led his murder in 1839.
