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.

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.
