Birth: 1808
Death: 1891
Roberts County
South Dakota, USA

Simon Anawangmani (He Who Goes Galloping Along) was born in about 1808. A Dakota of the Wahpeton band, he was educated at Dr. Williamson's Lac Qui Parle mission. Although he had an early reputation as a warrior, he was one of the earliest Dakotas to convert to Christianity, and was later known for his prominence in the Hazelwood Church, where he was an elder. He was friendly to the whites during the Dakota uprising of 1862. He protected the Hazelwood missionaries and distinguished himself by rescuing a German captive, Mrs. Neuman, and her three children. After bringing the captives to Ft. Ridgely, he joined Sibley's forces as a scout. He fought at the Battle of Wood Lake and the campaigns that followed, and was with Sibley's army until 1865. The government eventually awarded Simon a sum of $500.00 for his brave efforts and valuable service during the uprising. In 1866 he was licensed to preach in the Presbyterian church. After the Sisseton reservation was established in 1867, he settled on land near the agency, and died there in the summer of 1891. His name appears on a monument erected by the Minnesota Valley Historical Society at Morton, Minnesota. The monument is in commemoration of the Dakotas who saved lives of the whites during the 1862 uprising.
