Grey Cloud Woman "Marpiyahota" Wapasha Aryd
Birth: 1744
Death: 1844, USA

Grey Cloud Woman was a prominent Dakota woman and a successful fur trader. The daughter of Chief Wabasha I who figured prominantly in the American Revolutionary War, fighting on the British side. Her father was also known as Red Leaf, LeFeuille. Her brother was Wabasha II. After her husband, James' death, in 1819, she moved to live with her daughter, Margaret, at Prairie du Chien. Later she moved to Upper St. Peter's River in the 1830's. She died there at Black Dog's Mdewakanton Dakota village upstream from Mendota, Minnesota Territory. She was buried there in the village cemetery until road construction needed to remove her. She was reburied in the Lower Sioux Community Cemetery. Possibly in the Mdewakanton Repatriation Burial Site in a park in Minnesota.
