Associated Cultures: Sioux, Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux
At the request of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe a listing was prepared of human remains affiliated with the Sisseton-Wahpeton from the vicinity of Lake Traverse Reservation in northeastern South Dakota and southeastern North Dakota. The Sisseton and Wahpeton are part of the Eastern Division of the Dakota. The remains of a minimum of 31 individuals listed in 24 catalog numbers at the National Museum of Natural History that are affiliated with the Sissteon-Wapheton were collected by Army medical personnel in the late nineteenth century.
These remains were returned to the Sisseton-Wahpeton in 1991.
