I have just received this book through interlibrary loan-
Ehanna Woyakapi- History and Culture of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota. by Elijah Black Thunder
What an amazing book it is! I contacted the publisher to ask about sharing some of it here and was told it is in its 4th printing, and still copyright protected. While I do have it (for the next 3 weeks) I can at least do look-ups for you.
Anyone researching their Sisseton-Wahpeton ancestors can still find this book for sale, or to borrow through interlibrary loan.
Update- I have my own copy of this book now, so I will be happy to do look-ups forever. Thank you to the special soul who sent this book to me. You know who you are. :-)
vicky: thanks so much. Is there anything in it about Scarlet Plume and his family? I am alsointereste if there is anything about the Kittos, and Paul Mazakutemani, and Narcisse Frenierre and his family. i sure appreciate any information youmay find in the book.
Paul Mazakutemani- Little Paul- Walks Shooting Iron Brother of Cloudman and Eagle Help Married Unkto mani daughter of Ta te mani Their daughter married Lt. James McClure. After his death she married Antoine Renville. (That would be Nancy) Considered the best orator of the tribe Signed treaty of 1851 Scout for Sibley
Tate mani- Walking Wind Sisseton Had migrated from Lake Traverse to Traverse des Sioux in 1851 because of a feud over a woman who two chiefs wanted as a wife. Two sons and four daughters Second daughter, UnKto mani married Paul Mazakutemani (Little Paul) Grandfather of Red Iron, Red Day, Caska, Hake
Not much for Scarlet Plume- Wanbi upi duta- Sisseton- chief at foot of Big Stone Lake Made trip to Washington in 1858 to sign treaty Signed treaty of 1861
For the Kitto family you will want to look at Santee, right Mike?
hermin1, this is only info from the appendix. There is no index, so if I run across these names I'll let ya know.
I called my bookseller today to see about purchasing this book. They cannot find it either new or used. I contacted the publisher again to see if I can purchase directly from them. I'll let you know what I find.
Vicki you might try the Sisseton Wahpeton College at Old Agency ( I think it might be called Agency Village now) The phone number would be listed in Sisseton SD. They used to have some copies at their library or in the bookstore.

I would like to offer my heart-felt thanks to Michael Selvage, Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe Chairman, for giving me permission to post some pages from this book to help our people. God bless his generous heart.
For those of you who requested Scout Camps info I am posting pages 45-48.
hopstismiley- the only mention of Susan Frenier appears on p. 47.
The remainder of Brown's Scouts List which begins on p. 48 can be found on this site, so I won't duplicate the pages.
Ages ago, someone here was looking for the Constitution and Bylaws for one of our tribes. If it was the SWST you were seeking, they are included in this book. Give me a holler and I'll post them if anybody is interested.
Hi Beth, You will not find this through your book store. I tried. Amazon does not have it either- new or used. If you live near Sisseton, you can find it at the places suggested by nncy58. You might try contacting the Sisseton Wahpeton College to see if they have it in their book store. They have a web site. The publisher sells the book directly to the tribe. You might try contacting them also. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Vicky
