The body of Scarlet Crow is buried in a far corner of a cemetery, about a mile from the U.S. Capitol. He was a tribal leader from the Wahpeton Sisseton Tribe in the Dakota Territory who left his wife and eight children to travel to Washington, D.C., in 1867 to negotiate a treaty with the federal government.
Scarlet Crow never again returned to his tribal lands. His death certificate says he committed suicide. But he was murdered.
