She was built in the Hauptman Yards 1918-19 PD. The ship was named by Jeremy X, the Ballroom's leader, after the Pottawatomie Massacre in May 1856 CE in North America on Earth. As an Anti-Slavery League vessel, Pottawatomie Creek was used as a training ship for members of the Audubon Ballroom, and probably as an anti-slaver ship as well.
In 1919 PD, the ship was chosen to transport the unofficial Manticoran representation to Erewhon for the funeral of Hieronymus Stein. She later took Anton Zilwicki to the planet Smoking Frog in the Maya Sector to investigate a clue to Elaine Komandorski's origins. (CS1)
