"Another requirement (of the peace treaty to end the Cherokee-English was of 1760) was that the head men of the nation, Oconostota being mentioned specifically, were to assemble at Charles Town on December 16th (1761) to ratify the treaty, and this they did. Oconostota, however, was still wary of trusting himself within the power of the English, but sent his brother Kitegista with a peace pipe to represent him."
