Abstract

The Crow Creek Indian Reservation is located in south Lakota, bordering the east side of the Missouri River, about forty miles below Pierre, the Capital. In fact, a part of Hughes county lies in the Big Bend District of the reservation, and the south end of Hyde County and the west end of Buffalo County make up the rest of it - in all 313,304,23 acres or 489.5 square miles - about 13.5 townships. Parallel 44° North Latitude cuts the southern part of the Reservation, while meridian 99° West Longitude is just east of it. The nearest rail road point is Chamberlain on the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul R.R., which is about twenty five miles down the river, same being about one hundred and eighty miles north west of Sioux City.
