On This Day
Mary C. Collins, doctor, teacher, minister and friend to the Indians of the Standing Rock Reservation, died at her Iowa home today in 1920. Born in Illinois, Collins taught in Iowa before arriving at Ft. Sully and the Oahe Mission. In 1885 Collins came to Little Eagle. She was popular among Indians and befriended Chief Sitting Bull, who adopted Collins into his tribe. In 1899 Collins became a minister in the Congregational Church, allowing her to perform ceremonies on the reservation.
