“honoring the great chief”

War Eagle was born in Minnesota or Wisconsin around 1785. His Dakota name was. He had left his own tribe, the Santee, to avoid bloodshed in a fight as to who would be chief. In the fall of 1851 War Eagle died and was buried on top of the high bluff overlooking the confluence of the Big Sioux and Missouri. Today the bluff is part of War Eagle Park in Sioux City. An impressive monument honors the great chief, and depicts him with the eagle feather bonnet and calumet/peace pipe, symbolizing his brave leadership and his love of peace.
