Chief Spotted Eagle fought at the Battle of Little Bighorn.

http://www.coffrinsoldwestgallery.com/pictures.html shows an image of Chief Spotted Eagle's camp: Spotted Eagle's Village was the last great leather lodge village seen on the Yellowstone. These lodges were pitched in the fall of 1880 near Fort Keogh when the Spotted Eagle hand numbering nearly 2500 people of the Sioux nation surrendered to General Nelson Miles. At this point in time, most lodges in other camps were made from White Man's canvas. This is also the village where Rain-In-The-Face was a prisoner of war and where Huffman smuggled him away from the camp and into his studio where numerous photographs were made of him. (see page 39 of Coffrin's catalogue).

An image of the camp may be seen at http://www.coffrinsoldwestgallery.com/largeimages/spotted.html.

They made us many promises, more than I can remember. But they kept but one - They promised to take our land...and they took it. -- Chief Red Cloud

Tunkashila, Let us stand Coalition strong in protection of our lands, our beliefs, our Sacred Spirituality, and our traditional Indigenous ways of life. We stand in strong support of Indigenous Rights and the Inherent Allodial title of Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota Lands. Let us reclaim what is ours and work diligently to preserve what we now have.

End Dakota/Lakota/Nakota Ethnic Cleansing!

This website was created to Honor of our Ancestors, our Traditions, Elders and Children, and to provide a future for our generations to come.

That piece of red, white and blue cloth stands for a system and a country that does not honor it's own word...If it stood for honor and truth, it would remember our treaties and give them the appropriate place under international law. But it doesn't. It dishonors its own word and violates its treaties...
In Honor of Tony Black Feather (Died August 11 2004)
