     Dalton Murray Green began his earthly journey on May 12, 1961 in Devils Lake, N.D., the son of Lawrence Green Sr. and Eunice Ross.  He attended school at St. Michael and then went to Wahpeton Boarding School through the 8th grade.  He attended high school in Flandreau, S.D. and graduated from Fort Totten High School.  He was a star basketball player at Flandreau and Fort Totten.  He continued his education at Kicking Horse Job Corps in Montana and later attended college in Mobridge, SD.  
    Dalton worked in Logan, UT, Bismarck, N.D., Browning, MT. and after moving back to the Spirit Lake Nation he worked for DTI (Dakota Tribal Industries) Sioux Manufacturing Corporation and the Fort Totten Police Department.
    Dalton had a passion for beading and other Native American arts and crafts.  He also generously taught this beautiful art of beading to his children and grandchildren.  He enjoyed fishing, going to basketball games and pow-wows.
    Dalton was so proud of his ?girls? and adored his grandchildren.  We will all miss him so very much and will hold his memory in our hearts.
