Inkpaduta(?1815–?78) Santee Sioux chief; born at the Watonwan River, present-day South Dakota. As chief of his band (1848), he led them on a massacre of whites near Spirit Lake, Iowa, in March 1856. He was never caught, and his violent ways were instrumental in turning many whites against the Santee Sioux.
