Hello Ironshield, My name is Alma Zamora and I am researching my Indian ancestry (Sioux) My great grandmother was Rose White Thunder who attended the Carlisle School from 1883-1887. I contacted the personnel at the school to find out what happened to her after 1887. They have no record of her whereabouts. Her brother, Ernest White Thunder also attended the school and is buried there at the cemetery. Their father, Chief White Thunder was from the Lakota tribe. I understand he was in Wisconsin and moved to South Dakota and was killed by Spotted Tail in 1884. I need to know the date and place of his birth. I was trying to contact Tony Garcia White Thunder but found out that he died in 2012. I am also trying to find out where and how she met my great grandfather and the location of her burial site. I appreciate any assistance with my family genealogy.
