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.
Anpetutokacha - Other Day but took the name John Other Day His village was located about the Agency
John Other Day aka Ampatutokacha: (see: Curtis A. Dahlin, 2009) - as a young warrior he was wild and much feared, indulging in Alcohol, violent - he killed three or four Dakotas in drunken brawls - in 1857 on mission to rescue Sprit Lake captives - in 1858 as a delegate in Washington, met a white woman and married her later - headed Wahpeton village located near the Hazelwood Mission - he saved many Whites in 1862 Uprising, becoming somewhat a hero - he scouted for General Sibley at the Battle of Wood Lake - he died in October 1869 at Fort Wadsworth, Dakota Territory
Before he got his Christian name, John Other Day was known as Hotonho Waste, Beautiful Voice.
In autumn 1852 he was painted by German artist Adolf Hoeffler (1825-1898) from Frankfurt am Main, Germany, who went to the New World in 1848.
Hoeffler, who went to the villages near Fort Snelling to get his images, painted two portraits of Good Sounding Voice as a young warrior. As you see below he also painted the likeness of Bad Hail, who was the leading speaker of the Mdewakanton at that time.
Bad Hail (Wasumi chashtashni) & Good Sounding Voice (Hotonho washte), 1852
