Biography: 

The Indians in this story, or at least the tribal chief, the Man, practice polygamy, as is clear from the reference to "Issetibbeha dying among his wives" (329). This is Issetibbeha's "newest wife" (321), not Moketubbe's mother but the woman who tells him Moketubbe has hidden the slippers. She is unwilling to sleep in the gilt bed that Issetibbeha brought back from Paris, but no other details about her are provided.
