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.
Mahpiya Wicasta - Cloud Man or Man of the Clouds
This village was located 5 or so miles up the Yellow Medicine river from the Agency. I do not know his it was this chief or the Mdewakantowan chief with the same name that was killed at Fort Berthold by the Arikaras during a peace and unification attempt by Little Crow in 1862. So, really need some other input on this man and his descendants.
