Little Hawk




There were two prominent Cheyenne named Little Hawk.

- The first one was a Southerner, a member of the Dog Soldier band, who was also called Young Bull Robe.

- The other Little Hawk was a Northern Cheyenne, who was a Elkhorn Scraper society member. He was fighting in the battles at the Rosebud and Little Bighorn when he was twenty-eight years old. He left his account to Grinnell in 1908 (see Jerome Greene: Lakota and Cheyenne and Peter Powell: People of the Sacred Mountain).

Because there are several Indian individuals named Little Hawk, it is not definite that this is the Cheyenne. Instead this also could be a Brule of that name. — Dietmar Schulte-Möhring
