Dorion Family Genealogy Forum
Hi everyone, I'm not a family descendant (at least I don't think so!) but I am a student of the history of the Lakota Indians and the fur trade. Currently I'm doing some research on the role of Pierre Dorion, Sr. in both the fur trade and diplomacy with the Lakota, the people of his wife. The Lakota winter counts (calendric histories) have a number of entries relating to fur traders in the period 1794-1810. Two of the men named were known to the Lakota as "The Good White Man" and "Little Beaver". Briefly I think the first may be Pierre Dorion, Sr. and the latter may be his son, Pierre Jr. Can anyone help further my research into the Lakota dimension of the Dorion family?
