  5. Foxes, Foxed, Foxing: North American Indian people living mainly in Oklahoma but also in Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, United States They are distinct from but united with the Sauk (Sac) as the Sac and Fox Nation. Their name for themselves is Mesquakie (or Meshkwahkihaki, meaning "People of the Red Earth") and their language is of the Algonquian family. They are believed to have originated from the Great Lakes region. Both the Sauk and the Fox were living in Wisconsin at the time of first European contact. Their permanent villages; near fields in which women cultivated corn, beans and squash; were occupied in summer; in winter they hunted bison on the prairies. A chief and council administered tribal affairs. Families were grouped into clans. Religious life centred on the Grand Medicine Society, whose members enlisted supernatural aid to heal the sick and ensure success in warfare. In the 18th century the Fox joined with the Sauk to war against the French and English. Though unconquered, they retreated south to Illinois and later west to Iowa. In 1832 Black Hawk led a group of Fox and Sauk in an unsuccessful attempt to return to their Illinois lands. In the 2000 United States census some 4,200 people claimed Sac and Fox descent.

He entered Parliament in 1768 and became leader of the Whigs in the House of Commons, where he used his brilliant oratorical skills to strongly oppose Britain's policy toward the American colonies. Almost always in the political opposition, he conducted a vendetta against George III and was later an enemy of William Pitt. He served as Britain's first foreign secretary (1782, 1783, 1806). He achieved two important reforms by steering through Parliament a resolution pledging it to end the slave trade and by enacting the 1792 Libel Act, which restored to juries their right to decide what constituted libel and whether or not a defendant was guilty of it. He is remembered as a great champion of liberty.

In 1987 he joined the National Action Party (PAN) and the following year was elected to the national Chamber of Deputies. Elected governor of Guanajuato in 1995, he left the post in 1998 to focus on his national campaign.

  26. an Algonquian-speaking tribe of North American Indians who called themselves Meshkwakihug or Mesquakie (Red-Earth People). When they first met Europeans in 1667, they lived in the forest zone of what is now northeastern Wisconsin. Their permanent villagesnear fields in which women cultivated corn (maize), beans and squashwere occupied in summer; most Fox left the villages after the harvest to participate in communal winter bison hunts on the prairies. A peace chief and council of elders administered tribal affairs; important issues were discussed by the entire tribe until decisions were reached. War parties rallied about men whose skill and reputation made them leaders. Families were grouped into clans that were mainly ceremonial organizations with members tracing their descent from a mythical founder through the male line. A major religious organization was the Midewiwin or Grand Medicine Society, a secret society whose members were believed to be able to heal the sick and to enlist supernatural aid to ensure tribal welfare. Many ceremonies involved the use of sacred medicine bundles, which were collections of magical objects. Beginning about the 18th century the Fox joined with the Sauk (Sac) to war against the French and then the English and, though unconquered, retreated to Illinois and then Iowa. They moved to Kansas in 1842, but in 1857 they returned to Iowa, where they purchased land in Tama county and where they reside today. The Fox have maintained their traditional community: clan and ceremonial organizations survive and the Fox language is spoken in the home. They hold their land as a tribe, with an elected business council to handle funds and relations with the government.
  27. any of various members of the dog family (Canidae) resembling small to medium-sized, bushy-tailed dogs with long fur, pointed ears, relatively short legs and narrow snouts. In a more restricted sense, the name refers to about 10 species of true foxes (Vulpes), especially the red or common, foxes, V. vulpes of the Old World and V. fulva (included with V. vulpes by some authorities) of the New World. Red foxes are widely held symbols of animal cunning and are the subject of a considerable amount of folklore. The native Old World form ranges over virtually all of Europe, temperate Asia and northern Africa; the New World red fox inhabits most of North America north of Mexico. Red foxes, with their coats of long guard hairs and soft, fine underfur, are typically a rich reddish brown with white-tipped tail and black ears and legs. Colour, however, is variable; the colour phases known as black and silver fox are found in North America and the cross or brant, fox is found in both North America and the Old World. Red foxes are generally about 90105 centimetres (3642 inches) long (about 3540 cm of this being tail), stand about 40 cm at the shoulder and weigh about 7 kilograms (15 pounds). Their preferred habitat is mixed farmlands and woodlots. Small mammals, chiefly mice and rabbits, as well as eggs, fruit and birds (including some domestic fowl) comprise the diet; remains of larger animals usually indicate that the fox fed on carrion. Red foxes mate in winter; after a gestation period of about 51 days, the female (vixen) gives birth to 110 cubs (pups) in a den, which is commonly a burrow abandoned by another animal and enlarged by the parent foxes. The cubs remain in the den for about five weeks and are cared for by both parents throughout the summer. Red foxes are hunted by man, one of their few enemies, for sport and fur. Fox pelts, especially those of silver foxes, are commonly produced commercially on fox farms. Wild red foxes, although they are often destroyed for raiding hen houses, are highly beneficial in controlling undesirable rodents. The other members of the genus Vulpes and the varieties of red foxes include the following: African sand fox: pale fox. Bengal fox (V. bengalensis), small gray fox common in southern Asia. Black fox, colour phase of the red fox; sometimes also used as a common name for the fisher. Blanford's fox: hoary fox. Brant fox: cross fox. Chama (caama, cama, kama) fox: South African silver fox. Corsac (corsak) fox (V. corsac), small, steppe-dwelling fox of eastern Eurasia; coat yellowish brown or reddish brown. Cross fox, yellowish brown colour phase of the red fox, having a cross-shaped black marking extending across the shoulders and down the back. Hoary fox (V. cana), Eurasian species about 60 cm in length; coat gray above, white below. Indian fox: Bengal fox . Kit fox (V. macrotis) and swift or plains kit fox (V. velox), large-eared pale foxes of western North American plains and deserts; possibly not separable as two distinct species; colour gray to yellowish brown with black-tipped tail; adult length about 4050 cm without the 2030-cm tail, weight about 1.53 kg; V. macrotis, smaller with larger ears; both forms live in burrows, feed on small animals (rodents, rabbits, insects); shy, uncommon, beneficial in rodent control. Pale fox (V. pallida), yellow to brown desert fox of northern Africa. Ruppell's fox (V. ruppelli), big-eared gray desert fox of northern Africa and southwestern Asia; sometimes; also called fennec; length to 74 cm.

Rigid VI, Rigid the Sixth, the Sixth, Sixth, Quick Brown Fox, Quick, Brown, Tete d'Oeu, Tete, d'Oeu, Rigid Egg-head, Egg-head, Egg, head: Rigid the Sixth was a devoted husband and father, and was also very fond of animals, in marked contrast to his predecessors who had spent most of their spare time shooting arrows into the wild boars who roamed the palace corridors. Rigid was also something of an eccentric; he invariably spoke English to his subjects but tolerantly allowed them to reply in their native Strine tongue. This democratic monarch's sense of justice was so fastidious that he treated even the royal alphabet with scrupulous fairness, and whenever he spoke he always allowed each letter to make at least on brief appearance
