|Death: ||Dec. 26, 1862|
One of 38 Sioux condemned to death for his role in the Dakota War of 1862. His name was pronounced Hin-han-shoon-ko-yag-ma-ne. He was convicted on the testimony of an eyewitness, Mrs. Alexander Hunter, of the murder of her husband, and with taking herself prisoner. Her testimony was corroborated. Shortly before their execution, the prisoners made statements to the Rev. Stephen Riggs as to their participation in the war. He told Rev. Riggs that he was charged with killing white people, and so condemned. He did not know certainly that he killed any one. He was in all of the battles.
Case No. 6. Hin-han-shoon-ko-yag-ma-ne. Convicted of the murder of Alexander Hunter, and of having taken and held Mrs. Hunter a prisoner until she was rescued from him by another Indian.
