Custodial History
Custodial History
Received from Dr. Z.T. Daniel in 1893 (no accession record found) and originally cataloged in artifact collection as Sioux, based on place of origin. See also Ms. 166,930. Pine Ridge was established as a reservation for the Lakota but a group of Northern Cheyenne were also resident there from 1881 to October 1891. The name of the presumed artist Nacoista appears to be Cheyenne.
