Taawayite, Comanche.( Name may have been spelled otherways) I am
trying to gather info on Taawayite a student that attended Carlisle.

St Augustine Fl. Spent some time at Hampton Industrial school. Then moved
on to Carlisle in 1881 arriving with Rev.Wicks. He then left Carlisle
in 1881 to go to Oklahoma. Would like to hear from anyone that can instruct

for awhile as he was fond of Capt
