Roger (Cloud Shield) Student Information Card

Student information card of Roger, a member of the Sioux Nation, who entered the school on October 6, 1879 and departed on June 19, 1882.

In school documentation Roger is also known as Cloud Shield and Mahpiya Wahacanka.

Note: In a version at Yale of the photograph of the first male students, Richard Henry Pratt identifies one of them as Harrison Cloud Shield. There is no student with that name and Pratt does not identify any of the sitters of Roger, so we believe that the student identified there as Harrison is Roger.
