Famous American Indian Series 6|
A brilliant Sioux chief born on Moreau River in South Dakota in 1840. As a young man he was a warrior of note. At the Battle of the Little Big Horn he displayed remarkable ability as a military expert for the way he disbursed his forces. Although a lieutenant of Sitting Bull, he possessed the quality of leadership which was lacking in his chief. He later denounced Sitting Bull as a coward and a faker, and became a friend of the whites. He was a man of noble presence and much esteemed for his candor and sagacity by all who knew him. In 1889 he was appointed judge of the court of Indian offenses at the Standing Rock Agency. He died in 1894.
