The Battle of Little Big Horn is one of the best-known battles in the American Indian wars of the nineteenth century. In that battle Minoma Littlehawk’s Cheyenne ancestors defeated Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and over 200 of his men. She is also a direct descendent of Chief Black Kettle, whose village was massacred by Custer eight years earlier at the Battle of the Washita. With thorough research and intimate ancestral involvement, Ms. Littlehawk brings a unique depth of perspective to this pivotal time in American History.
