Fourth Person

I've been wondering about something recently:  is it possible for languages
to have a fourth person?  I heard that some native American language somewhere
like in New York State or something had one (Haida?), but don't remember the
details.  In any event, I wonder whether that would be something equivalent to
the use of "one" in English or "man" in German.
