Ota Chief Eagle Student File

Ota Chief Eagle Student File

Student file of Ota Chief Eagle. No entrance or departure dates are given, and no Nation is given. The file contains a returned student survey, a report after leaving, and a note from Chief Eagle to the school. The returned student survey from 1911 indicates that he attended high school after leaving Carlisle at Flandreau High school (September 1892), was married to Susie Red Cloud, and worked as a laborer, interpreter for the agency doctor, and clerk. 

Note: In this file the student is referred to as Otto Chief Eagle and Ota Chief Eagle. 

Note: Other school records indicate Chief Eagle entered the school on November 30, 1882 and ultimately departed on June 26, 1894. He was a member of the Sioux nation. It appears as if Chief Eagle entered the school first in 1882, departed at some time after 1886 (when he went on an outing), and re-enrolled on June 24, 1891, before finally leaving in 1894. It is not clear how his attendance at Flandreau High School in September o 1892, as reported in this file, fits into his attending Carlisle.
