Emma Hand (Black Breath) Student Information Card

Student information card of Emma Hand, a member of the Sioux Nation, who entered the school on November 30, 1882 and departed on June 14, 1887.

In school documentation Emma Hand is also known as Black Breath and Emma Hand Means.

Note: The information about Emma Hand dying in 1887, written in the upper right hand corner of the card, seems to be an error; in 1890 she replied to a survey sent to former students.
