Hogansapa, was a chief of the Pabaksa or Cuthead band of Yanktonais. He was the son of the famous chief Waneta, the Charger. In a letter dated July 8th, 1862, from Thomas J. Galbraith, the U.S. Indian Agent at the Sioux Indian Agency (Pajutazee), Galbraith gave Hogansapa's "uniform" as a gift to Bishop Whipple: "Please accept the entire "uniform" of Ho-gun-sapa (Catfish) a Yanktonai chief. It embraces a mantle, leggings, garters, Bearskin anklets, two head dresses, moccasins, and his pipe. He gave it to me as a present in council held with a Delegation of the hundred chiefs & soldiers of his people on the 30th day of June 1862 at this agency. The council was an amicable and pleasant one & Resulted in an agreement to meet at Campesca Lake next Spring & make a Treaty. Hoping that the pipe was from a token of the perpetual peace between you & myself as well as between the Yanktonais & the Government."
