Birth: unknown
Death: Dec. 26, 1862

Mdewakanton Dakota warrior. In historical records, Wa-heh-hud is alternatively spelled Wan-he-hud, Wa-he-hna, or Wahina, meaning "I Came". Prisoner confessed that he had been in three battles and fired at white people, " but never took good aim;" that he belonged to the Soldier's Lodge. David Faribault testified that he heard him say that he had shot a messenger (Richardson) going to the fort. He said that he did not kill any one. If he had believed he had killed a white man he would have fled with Little Crow. He said the witnesses lied about him.

Case No. 12. Wan-he-hud. Convicted of participating in the battles, and of murder.
