I’m Carl Leith..the guy the administers to the Dakota Kinship FB Group

looking for more families that would connect to the Halfbreed Tract in Minnesota
been working with the Mendota Council researching connections to the Halfbreed Tract
most of them can prove descent from a specific Dakota Chiefs those who had signed the various treaties
Little Crow III(Cetanwakanmani), Little Crow IV-(Wakinyantanka)
Wahkute
Wabasha
Husasa-these relatives for the most part are at LSIC

the Halfbreed Tract-Royce 292 is located below Redwing Mn, along the westside of Lake Pepin
this was established by the 1837 Treaty of Prairie du Chien
the HalfBreeds traded their tribal allotments for allotments in the public domain
the legal instrument used for this were called Sioux Scrip Land Patents
these scripts can be applied anywhere, where land was available
in Mn a little more 2000 Land patents were purchased using these scripts
I have plotted all those in MN. There are more outside the state, but I was just interested in those
still within the Royce 289 area. This area was the only time the Mdewakanton/Wahpakute made a territorial claim

I have a copy of Roll M550 with affidavits from the Halfbreed Tract
“every man, woman and child received “not more than 640 acres, and not less then 40 acres”

if you want a copy let me know on fb-Dakota Kinship
I’ll add you to my dropbox
