These glass beads were recovered from the Village on the Pawnee Fork in Ness County during excavations in 1977. Beads such as these were widely traded until the 1850s, predating the burning of the village. The Village on Pawnee Fork, home to several hundred Southern Cheyenne and Southern Teton Oglala was destroyed by order of Major General Winifred S. Hancock in 1867. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
