Book - The Sitting Bull Surrender Census - The Lakota at Standing Rock Agency, 1881
"I first became interested in Lakota census records nearly ten years ago when I realized that these documents might help in understanding the history of individual tiyospaye or native communities. I began seeking out all the census records I could find and compiling a master index of names."
"Over the years, I have often been reminded that these names, recorded in the old documents, represent real people with lives, hopes and families." ~In the words of the author. The census taker took the time to not only record families in whole and their relation to the head of the household but also how many dogs, and even how successful their hunts had been for the year. This is a real step back in time.
