Scouts at Little Bighorn
list of Arikara scouts was published by Rhoda M. Star
in Little Bighorn Remembered by Herman J. Viola.
is another good list: www.natureshift.org/Whawk/resource/scouts.html
can find many names mentioned in the list in Orin G.
Libby's book The Arikara Narrative of Custer´s
Campaign... (University of Oklahoma Press). I found
there the following information about some of the Arikaras:
Chief: brother of Red Bear; photo of him in
the book. (I didn't find if he was named Black Calf
Star: (a/k/a Strikes the Bear) born 1858 at
Fort Clark; father: also Red Star; mother: Women-Goes-Into-Every-House;
fought with Reno; from 1898 to 1901 he was on police
duty. He changed his name to Red Star after the LBH
battle! (His detailed narrative, his biography, and
a photo are in Libby's book.)
also named Bull in the Water; leader of the Arikara
Bull: captured a horse herd during the battle
together with Bull, Red Wolf, and White Eagle.
Wolf: see Charging Bull
Wolf: he and Left Handed were sent back to
Fort Lincoln with mail when the Custer column was in
the Little Missouri region and later returned with mail
from the fort.
(High) Bear: was enlisted by F.F. Gerard among
several others of Chief White Shield's police force;
had a dispute with Reno during the march to the LBH.
Reno ordered some scouts to stay behind because their
horses were worn out. Tall Bear protested and even started
for Reno with his knife. Bloody Knife sprang between
and saved Reno. (This incident is also described by
Ben Innis in Bloody Knife - Custer´s Favorite
Face: when the mule train with supplies was
left behind, Pretty Face was detailed on the duty of
looking after it; after the Reno battle the scouts assembled
what to do and by then Pretty Face had already joined
the others from the pack train.
up the Hill: no information.
