Biography: 

He is "The Man" - i.e. the chief of the Chickasaw tribe in the story (361). In "Red Leaves" Issetibbeha is Ikkemotubbe's son. But in this story, as elsewhere in the Yoknapatawpha fictions, he is Ikkemotubbe's uncle. He does not appear directly in the narrative of "A Courtship." Before its events begin he signs a treaty with General Jackson, and he "enters the earth," dies, about two years after the main story ends (363).
