Hello. I found there were at least, am not certain, but at least 12 Wahpeton villages in 1862. Someone correct me on this lol...... So I will post each village and number it along with this message. So, someone jump in and help me out. I will post them like...Village 1. or Village 2. with the name of the leader of the people. So, here goes.
Inkpa - The End (or a variation of this)
The leaders and his village lived furthest to the north than the other Wahpetons. His village was located at Big Stone Lake. I was not able to find who his headmen or warriors were. So someone can fill in the rest..lol also a picture if there is one out there.

Kingsley: Yes, I think two or more leaders are mentioned. J.R. Brown was making up a list of delegates to send to Washington in 1867 to sign a peace treaty to stop the 1862-1867 war. I will have to look in my files to see who the other bands were. These were only Sisitunwan and Wahpetunwan leaders. However I think it was Mazakutemani who said - "Not one good man was sent" to negotiate the 1867 treaty which established the Devils Lake and Lake Traverse Reservations. Toksta, Louie
