Renville, Gabriel (1825–1892)

Gabriel Renville was a fur trader, a farmer, and the leader of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota from 1867 until 1892. Related by blood to multiple Dakota bands and mixed-ancestry families, he opposed Ta Oyate Duta (His Red Nation, also known as Little Crow) and other Dakota who fought against whites in the 1862 U.S. Dakota War. His choice angered some of his relatives, who saw him as serving the interests of whites. After the war, he was one of many who worked to reacquire land for the Sisseton-Wahpeton people.
