Does anyone know where valid information can be found about the Mandan
Indian tribe of South Dakota. They apparantly died of smallpox in the
18th century caused by exposure to European explorers.

Undocumented myth says that some of them had blond hair and blue eyes and
that some of their customs indicated that they might be descendants of
"Viking" explorers.

Has anyone written on this??
