At least one person, now 90, recalls meeting her and her husband, who died in 1944.
In 1909, her reserve, No. 60 Turtle Mountain, was being dismantled by the Federal government.
Sitting Eagle and his grandfather He'Dami'Mani [Rattles as he Walks] were the only households to refuse to sign the dismantling and settlement in 1910.
Sitting Eagle represented the Dakota Sioux to a multi-national council including Dakota, Assiniboine, Hidatsa, Mandan, Cree, Ojibway and Saulteaux.
Mrs. Sitting Eagle may have occupied a similar position with respect to women, thus being possibly the highest ranking Dakota woman in Canada at this time.
