Fort Sill Post Cemetery
Established in 1869, the Post Cemetery at Fort Sill has interned soldiers, Native Americans and civilians. One area called "Chief's Knoll" is the burial site for prominent Indian chiefs. The first Native American buried there was Kiowa leader Satank, who was interred in 1871. Many of those buried were signers of the 1867 Medicine Lodge Treaty. In recognition of the historic significance of Chiefs Knoll, this section of the Post Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
