The group of Chickasaws from whom Sutpen acquires his Hundred is mentioned by Rosa, who calls them "ignorant" (10), but the only Indian individualized with a name is "Ikkemotubbe," whom the narrator refers to as the specific Indian "from whom [Sutpen] got his land" (33). His title (Chief, The Man) never appears, nor does his name appear again, although later Shreve calls him "a poor ignorant Indian" (145) and the hypothetical lawyer refers to him as "a drunken Indian" whom Sutpen "robbed" (241).
