Cree and Chippewa
Field Columbian Museum
In Games of the North American Indians, a J A Mitchell describes the native game (Reference Cree and Chippewa):
The king has the power to take the opposing pieces and can take as many pieces in one move as are left unprotected, but only following the lines of the board. the pawns have no power to take the king, but endeavor so to press it as finally to checkmate. The king is technically known as musinay-kah-whan.
The game is one which has been long known to the Indians and is much admired by them. Many skillful players have been developed, some being more particularly skilled in manipulating the king piece, while others make the pawn their special play. The play is invariably for stakes of some kind."
