Transcription"The Sioux Indians in Dakota. We give on this page an illustration of the recent Sioux Council, held at Standing Rock Agencyk, Dak., for the purpose of considering the question of the division of their lands. The picture shows Sitting Bull in the act of addressing the council. We also give portraits of Rain0in-the-face, one of the prominent Sioux chiefs, and of Major James McLaughlin, the Agent who has had charge of all the noted Sioux since their surrender. Major McLaughlin has done some excellent work in connection with the Indian service. Last Summer, for instance, he succeeded in inducing Sitting Bull to plow and sow seven acres of wheat, which was subsequently harvested, an agricultural feat of no small magnitude under the circumstances of the case. Major McLaughlin was located at Deviles Lake Agency, in Dakota, until 1881, when he was transferred to Standing Rock, to take charge of Sitting Bull, Rain-in-the-Race, Long Dog, and their party." - Text on page with three related images. Other two images, described separately.
NotesTitle from caption with image. One of three related images on page, other is portraits of James McLaughlin, and Rain-in-the-Face, both described separately.
