The Yankton spoke Nakota. The Teton, or Western Sioux, spoke Lakota and had seven divisions. The mile-long White River flowing through northern Arkansas and southern Missouri is a major tributary of the Mississippi River. The river begins in northwestern Arkansas in the Boston Mountains and flows east toward the Fayetteville (Washington County) area, where it then turns north. Near Eureka Springs (Carroll County), the river enters Missouri.

the classification of the White River sediments, viz.: a lower division, under the name of the Titanotherium Beds, and an upper division, knownas the Oreodon Beds. This latter division was made to include all those strata lying above the Titano-therium Beds, and was estimated at somewherein the vicinity of 6oo feet in thickness.

The study area is located in southwestern South Dakota, east of the Black Hills ().In this region, the White River Group consists of the Chamberlain Pass, Chadron, and Brule Formations ().The Chamberlain Pass Formation is a newly recognized unit more than 16 m thick that is comprised of multistory channel deposits and overbank mudstones (Terry,; Evans and Terry, ).

The Canidae of the Lower Miocene stage are relatively abundant and are, for the most part, derivable from stocks that were common to the Oligocene of the White River stage. The lesser canid phylum represented by Pseudocynodictis carries over from the Brule clays of the earlier epoch as a practically uninterrupted line.'.

Abstract. Revised lithologic correlations between type areas of the White River Group in Nebraska and South Dakota have resulted in a new lithostratigraphy for the lower part of the White River by: 1.It was recombined as Cynodictis latidens by Scott ; it was recombined as Nothocyon latidens by MatthewMerriam (), MatthewPetersonThorpe (), Hall and Martin (), Macdonald () and Macdonald (); it was recombined as Cormocyon latidens by Wang and Fremd (); it was recombined as Phlaocyon latidens by Wang, Tedford & Taylor Family: Canidae.Much of the Miocene "Snake Creek" or perhaps the so-called "Lower Snake Creek" seems to be in pt.
