Ota Chief Eagle (Wanbli yatapika) Student Information Card

Ota Chief Eagle (Wanbli yatapika) Student Information Card

Student information card of Ota Chief Eagle (Wanbli yatapika), a member of the Sioux Nation, who entered the school on November 30, 1882 and departed on June 26, 1894. The file indicates Chief Eagle was living in Kyle, South Dakota in 1913.

Note: Although this card says Chief Eagle was 22 years old in 1882 when he entered, there is also an entry in an admissions ledger for him on June 24, 1891, also indicating he was 22 years old at that time. It seems likely, therefore, that he was more like 13 years old when he entered in 1882, left Carlisle sometime after 1886 (when records show he went an on outing), and re-enrolled in 1891 at the age of 22.
