Seeking Information

Hello,

I am looking for information regarding my ancestral origins. A story has been passed down to me about my ancestors. I have very vague information about them. I only know a few details.

When two of my ancestors were married, they were given a bitter drink by the chief of the tribe. He said, "This is all of the bad things that will happen in your marriage." He then gave them a sweet drink. He said, "This is all the good things that will happen in your marriage."

I know the tribe is from the Missouri River Valley. They migrated seasonally. They spoke a Sioux language. I am wondering if there is any other information that can be found. What tribe was this? What were the drinks given to them? I am very curious about all of this.

I don't know of anyone who migrates seasonally, except for all the snow birds that flock to AZ during winter.

They migrated seasonally, i.e. The tribe moved from Arkansas to the Dakotas and back each year. Arkansas in the winter, Dakotas in the summer.

Since, I have your attention, can you point me to a good resource about the history of Standing Black Rock?

I think he migrates to Hawaii now and then. Also runs off to golf courses and stands still all looking black.
