Chief Abraham Burnett, Nan-wesa-mah, he who pray's with plants.
Chief Burnett passed on June 14, 1870. He weighted 496 pounds at the time of his death and enjoyed farming even with his difficulty in getting around. His superior education and way with words made him a very famous Potowatomi Chief.
Chief Burnett was born in 1812 and lived through some of the most challenging times of Potawatomi, by the forced removal of the Potawatomi and being forced to take on a different culture than what he knew.
