Red Horse, a Lakota chief, recorded a detailed eyewitness account of the Battle of Little Bighorn. He recalls seeing a rising cloud of red dust just before US soldiers charged their camp. With the hot sun bearing down on them, the Sioux took no prisoners in their defense of the land. This battle is also known as “Custer’s Last Stand,” but Red Horse’s account provides an invaluable native perspective on one of their most
decisive defeats of the US Army.
