Top Ten Legendary Native Americans

Americans know about Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, but you probably aren’t familiar with all the Native Americans from the history of the early United States profiled in this slide show. Red Cloud is ranked at #8.

Without a doubt, one of the best Native American war leaders the United States Army ever faced, Red Cloud organized 2,000 Arapaho, Sioux and Cheyenne in a successful bitch-slapping of U.S. forces out of the Lakota territory that is now Wyoming and southern Montana. Known as Red Cloud’s War, the two-year skirmish ended with the U.S. agreeing to completely withdraw from their area.
