Hiawatha (Civ3)
Wikipedia has a page called:

Hiawatha is the leader of the Iroquois civilization in Civilization III.


Tradition credits the formation of the Iroquois Confederacy, forged between 1570 and 1600, to Dekanawidah, born a Huron, who is said to have persuaded Hiawatha, an influential Onondaga who had become the Mohawks' war chief, to abandon cannibalism and advance "peace, civil authority, righteousness, and the great law" as sanctions for confederation. Hiawatha's Ojibwa name meant "He Makes Rivers", but it might as well have been "Wears Big Shoes" coming from the American saying if you could walk a day in my shoes you would know how hard my life is., because of his great leadership of the Iroquois much of his accomplishments became the stuff of legend, so much so that he was immortalized in Longfellow's poem "The Song of Hiawatha".
