Little Chief, a Northern Cheyenne warrior in 1876, fought under Chief Lame White Man in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Fishing upstream from the Indian village, Little Chief, White Shield, and other Cheyenne, and his nephew Dives Backward, were among the first to see the approach of enemy soldiers.
“Horse’s hooves thundered past. White Shield and I sprang to our feet and scurried up to higher ground. The Indian wearing the war bonnet and other Indians were riding toward our campground. From all we could see of the, they were not our people.” – Crow Agency, MT 1940
