One of the interesting addresses at the recent 22ath anniversary cele­ bration in White Plains was mads by A. C. Parker, who is of Indian extractiou. ^lr. Parker, who is a chief of the Seneca tribe, was former­ ly a resident of White Plains and represented the State Educatidnal Department at the celebration. T^ie speaker said that previous to the Revolutionary War the terri­ tory now embraced by White Plains, Tarrytown and Dobbs Ferry was oc­ cupied by the Weckquaes-gaeks and that the Siwauoys also claimed much of the land south of this region and along the Hudson and the Sound. These tribes, he said, be­ longed to the Algonquin linguistic' stock. \At the battle of White Plains,\ continued the speaker, \the Indians were stationed on Chatterton Hill, under the command of Colonel Has­ let. They were in the thickest of the fight and suffered heavily. They con­ tinued to be active in the campaign of 1777 and 1778 under General Washington in the regiments under command of General Lafayette. In August, 1778, they returned to West­ chester County.\ Here the speaker said they wer» engaged in several skirmishes and ambuscades, where they fought most gallantly and suffered the privations of the war without n niurtnor. Their descendants, he said, are to-day to be found among the Oneidns, of Wis­ consin, and the independent nations in the state of New 'iork. \1 must emphatically believe,\ said he. \'that the citizens of Westchester County nod the residentu of White- Pluius owe a monument to their In­ dian allies for their unHelfis 'i part in the struggle which meunt so much to. them and so little t o them.
