Biography/HistoryChief Looking's (Ward) Indian Village is thought to be a prehistoric Mandan Indian settlement dating around A.D. 1500. The village is well protected on all sides by a combination of a ditch with bastions and steep drop-offs into ravines. A row of house depressions that appear to be rectangular in form is on the north side of the village, and apparently circular house depressions exist elsewhere. The site overlooks the Missouri River.
