During the festivities, the explorers learned that a boy had just been born, and they asked to see the infant. They wrapped the baby in an American flag, held him up, and proclaimed him as destined to be a great "American". According to the traditions of the Yankton people, that baby boy was Struck by the Ree, who in manhood became a leader among the Yankton, and traveled to Washington DC.

Yankton, South Dakota

'''Yankton''' is a city in, and the county seat of, Yankton County (Yankton County, South Dakota), South Dakota, United States. The population was 14,454 at the 2010 census (2010 United States Census). Yankton is the principal city of the Yankton Micropolitan Statistical Area (List of Micropolitan Statistical Areas), which includes the entirety of Yankton County, and which had an estimated population of 22,696 as of 2013.

Yankton was the first capital of Dakota Territory. It is named for the Yankton (Sioux) tribe of Nakota (Sioux) (Sioux) Native Americans (Native Americans in the United States); Yankton is derived from the Nakota word ''I-hank-ton-wan'' ("the end village"). Riggs, S.R., The Reverend (1852) - ''Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge: Grammar and Dictionary of the Dakota Language'' – Smithsonian Institution G.P. Putnam, New York, N.Y. pp. 297, 336. Yankton is located on the Missouri River just downstream of the Gavins Point Dam and Lewis and Clark Lake and just upstream of the confluence with the James River (James River (Dakotas)). The United State National Park Service's headquarters for the Missouri National Recreational River are located in the city. The Human Services Center was established as a psychiatric hospital in 1882 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Yankton is commonly referred to as the "River City", due to its proximity to the Missouri River and the importance that the river played in the city's settlement and development. Yankton has also earned the nickname, "Mother City of the Dakotas", due to the early important role it played in the creation and development of the Dakota Territory, which later became the 39th and 40th U.S. states of North and South Dakota, respectively.
