Warriors in Khaki
Native American doughboys from North Dakota
by Michael J. Knudson
& Ann G. Knudson
The Indian Men from North Dakota
who Served in WWI
"Warriors in Khaki brings the history of WWI back to life through the biographies and
photos of North Dakota’s Indian men who served in “The Great War.” It provides a
personal link, a DNA chain, between the five or more generations of ND Indians since
the time when President Wilson asked Congress to declare war on Germany in 1917."
—Marilyn Hudson, Director, Three Affiliated Tribes Museum, New Town, ND (also known as Four Bears Museum)
"Warriors in Khaki details service, awards, battle accomplishments, and service affiliation of North Dakota Native Americans of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation), Standing Rock Sioux, Fort Totten Sioux, and Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa who served in World War I, information not readily available in any existing work.
This compilation fills a need and helps to recognize the continuing patriotism and over-the-top contribution of North Dakota Native Americans in that great conflict."
— Susan Dingle, Past President, Bismarck-Mandan Historical and Genealogical Society
