Dear Mr. Gullikson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Tribal bands are usually very distinguishable and carry through the years. With the dates you mentioned, all one might find is the new chief’s name, in the correspondence collections from the Dakota Superintendency, 1861-1878 with gaps, and the Commissioner in DC. These have all been microfilmed and organized chronologically.
Lists of people do not show up in censuses until around 1885 onward. The National Archives at Kansas City has a volume that starts in 1878. You may contact the Kansas City Archives via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this information is helpful.
