From New Native American Series “Beyond Dreams”
8th painting in this series

Not long after Custer fell at the Little Big Horn,, Chief Red Cloud and his band of warriors were disarmed at their camp by the US Army,,,(We have to remember the US army had field artillery)… Still on the loose in last winter of 1876 was Crazy Horse, one of the greatest warriors that ever lived.
In early winter of 1877 with about 500 Cheyenne and Sioux warriors, women and children… while they were camped at Wolf Mountain in Montana… they were attacked with field artillery (by Colonel Miles, with over 300 calvary men
Looking to get even for the fall of Custer ) Crazy Horse and his band manage to escape in a blinding blizzard… this engagement was considered a victory for the US army… Through the harsh winter, the once proud warriors, now on the run… knowing that their best years were now behind them, and starving … they started to kill their horses to survive, until the spring of 1877… when what was left of his band of warriors, old men women and children walked into the Red Cloud agency and surrendered… (the Indian reservations) were them called agencies where Indian agents some of them honest and truly cared for the plight of the Native Americans… but too many were greedy foreigners who cheated the Native Americans of their government allotments of beef and blankets. All weapons and horses were confiscated and sold and the money was used to buy beef again short changing the Natives… The warriors were allowed to keep their hunting knives, and hunting rifles were checked out to them with limited cartridges only when they were allowed to go hunting… less then 4 months later Crazy Horse was arrested and ordered to surrender… his hunting knives, he refused… in the scuffle with agency police and US calvary men he was killed..bayonetted
In the back he died almost instantly… Thus two of the greatest warriors of the 19th century were no more a threat… one no longer free and the other one murdered… Bringing this saga to an end… The End of the Horse Culture in the northern territories
