Piominko
1750 - 1799

Piominko served Chickasaws during the 18th century. He was born about 1750 in a settlement in Mississippi. Piominko was a pre-removal chief who provided strong leadership. He acted as a diplomat in order to protect Chickasaw sovereignty. Piominko met with other southeastern tribes, governors of states and President George Washington to reach agreements that benefitted his people. One of his greatest achievements was the signing of the Treaty of Hopewell in 1786, which formalized the tribe’s alliance with the U.S. government.
