These buttons were recovered from the Village on the Pawnee Fork in Ness County during excavations in 1977. The small brown button was likely used on ladies clothing. The larger metal buttons would likely have been used for trousers. The Village on Pawnee Fork, home to several hundred Southern Cheyenne and Southern Teton Oglala was destroyed by order of Major General Winifred S. Hancock in 1867. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
