Village of Cherokee Indians; 7. Raised corpses; 8. Village and rowboats of the Mandans; 9. Bed box of the Mandans; 10. North American Canoes. Mandan, North American Plains Indian people of Siouan linguistic stock who lived along the Missouri River between the Heart and the Little Missouri rivers. They were linguistically related to the Winnebago, and a vague tradition suggested that they had once lived farther east. Mandan culture was one of the richest of the Plains. In the 19th century the Mandan lived in dome-shaped, earth-covered lodges clustered in stockaded villages; they planted corn (maize), beans, pumpkins, and sunflowers, hunted buffalo seasonally, and made pottery and baskets. They had elaborate ceremonies, among them the sun dance and the Okipa, four-day festivals requiring long preparation. There were many other ceremonies that were performed by smaller groups; the bear ceremony was connected with healing and with war power. Mandan villages consisted of from 12 to 100 lodges; they had three chiefs: one for war, one for peace, and one a village leader. Their social organization included age-graded warrior societies in which membership was obtained by purchase. There were also social, shamanistic, and women's societies. Mandan artists painted on buffalo robes, depicting heroic deeds of the tribe or of individuals. In 1750 there were nine large Mandan villages, but recurrent epidemics of smallpox and cholera reduced them to two by 1800. In 1837 another smallpox epidemic left only 100-150 survivors. Some of them accompanied the Hidatsa to Fort Berthold in 1845; others following later. In the late 20th century the total Mandan population reported on the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota was about 350.
