Ish-tak-ha-ba, also known as Chief Sleepy Eyes, was a Native American chief of the Sisseton Dakota tribe. He became chief sometime between 1822 and 1825, and remained chief until his death in 1860. He tried to promote peace with whites in and around the state of Minnesota. He was a signer of at least four treaties with the United States government, and met with President James Monroe in Washington, D.C. in 1824.
