On November 25th, 1825, President John Quincy Adams welcomed a delegation of Upper Creek Indian headmen to the White House. Ledagie was one of them. Most of the men had their portraits done by the famous portrait artist Charles Bird King for the portrait gallery of Thomas McKenney, the head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Each was given a small version of the portrait as a souvenir. This color lithograph of Ledagie, chief of the Upper Creek tribe in central Alabama, was published ca.1843. Ledagie was wearing face paint and drawn in a sumptuous plumed hat with silver arm bands and a gorget.
