Thomas McKenney and James Hall are the authors of The History of the Indian Tribes of North America, a three-volume collection of Native American biographies and accompanying lithograph portraits. It was originally published in the United States from 1836 to 1844.

Charles Bird King painted portraits of Native American leaders who came to Washington to negotiate treaties. McKenney commissioned lithographs of the portraits which Charles Bird King painted, and he also commissioned James Hall to write a full biography of the subject on each portrait.
