Biography/HistoryIn this photograph Army Scouts pose near their temporary homes at Fort Rice. Arikara men, and sometimes Dakotas, enlisted in the Scouts. They were issued Army clothing, rations, and weapons. They and their families received medical care from the post surgeon. They received pay for their services. Arikaras would have lived in permanent earthlodges when they were at home, but when attached to the Scouts, they lived in tipis near the post with their families.
