"The Defiance of Whist-alks",by Nona Hengen

As Qualchan's wife Whist-alks rode into Col. Wright's encampment,she plunged a spear into the ground near Wright's tent. The spear was an entrance for Qualchan and a symbol of his intent to negotiate peace with Wright. The "lance" was covered with "solid beadwork",noted one soldier in the camp.[1]
