From The Shawnee prisoner: a borderer's story, by Clara Florida Guernsey:

In 1810 an old Wyandot chief named Leatherlips was put to death for witchcraft at the instigation of Tecumseh's brother, the so-called "prophet."  The chief died with great fortitude and bravery, occupied till the last moment in prayer to the Great Spirit.
