When I saw what the theme was immediately I thought of this picture below taken May 18th at the Spirit Lake Fish Hatchery in Spirit Lake,IA. Fishing like many places is huge here as well and this area is known as the Iowa Great Lakes. The numbers on the board are fairly impressive. It's fun place with history that goes back for the white man to the time of the Spirit Lake Massacre that took place between March 8–12, 1857. No picture but there were up to 40 killed.
Inkpaduta. He was also involved down in my neck of the woods in a fight with Winnebago trappers in 1854. The Winnebago's lost. 10 dead 16 wounded.
Did you know it was common for Sioux men to reach 7 feet tall. Is this important? Not really but this is about numbers and there are just 2 more.
Inkpaduta was feared because he had 2 sets of teeth and some of the people he killed was 6 miles away probably less from the hatchery..
