Tom Tomahawk, The Hawkeye Scout

Tom Tomahawk was one of In ‘ jun Joe’s scouts. He was the one who went looking for things, whenever In ‘ jun Joe couldn’t be bothered to go out. He used the cactus on the top of the hill as his lookout – and drove himself potty going round and about. He followed footprints in snowy weather and in Summer, went collecting headdress feathers. Tom Tomahawk loved to walk – though it was quite lonely in the hills and there was no – one with whom to talk. One time, he looked up and heard a hawl squawk, being an In ‘ jun, he understood hawk talk.
