Black Hawk's motives were ambiguous, but records show that he was hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been given to the United States in the 1804 Treaty of St. Louis."

French, English, and Scottish: from the Old French personal name Brice, probably Celtic (Gaulish) in origin but not firmly explained (Latinized as Bri(c)tius, Bric(c)ius, or Brixius), which was borne by a 5th-century Christian saint who succeeded Saint Martin as bishop of Tours. Consequently, it became a popular personal name in France and Germany in the early Middle Ages. It was imported to England and Scotland by the Normans. Compare German Brixius .
