The Black Prince

An Onondaga War Chief who became a Sachem later in life.  Loskiel states that “Taghananty” an Onondaga Sachem was called the Black Prince because his chest was literally black with a network of designs tattooed into his skin with gunpowder.  Conrad Weiser in his journal gives the “Black Prince” as the speaker on behalf of the Six Nations.  Later he died in a jail at Montreal.  Not sure of the circumstances that put him there.
