Crow King's Story of the Battle
A Hunkpapa Sioux's account of the Battle of the Little Bighorn

From the Leavenworth Weekly Times, Thursday, August 18, 1881. Note

Hunkpapa Sioux war chief Crow KingWE WERE in camp and not thinking there was any danger of a battle, although we had heard that the long-haired chief had been sent after us. Some of our runners went back on our trail, for what purpose I do not know. One came back and reported that an army of white soldiers was coming, and he had no more than reported when another runner came in with the same story, and also told us that the command had divided, and that one party was going round to attack us on the opposite side.

The first attack was at the camp of the Uncpapas tribe. The shots neither raised nor fell. (Here he indicated that the whites commenced firing at about four hundred yards distance.) The Indians retreated -- at first slowly, to give the women and children. time to go to a place of safety. Other Indians got our horses. By that time we had warriors enough to turn upon the whites and we drove them to the hill, and started back to camp...


The Custer Myth: A Source Book of Custerania, written and compiled by Colonel W.A. Graham, The Stackpole Co., Harrisburg, PA 1953, p 76 - 78

NOTE:

Crow King was a major player among the powerful Hunkpapa Sioux, as the recollections of Gall, Ohiyesa and Mrs. Spotted Horn Bull attest. Crow King was also sometimes known as Medicine Bag That Burns or Burns The Medicine Bag or just plain Medicine Bag -- Wopiye -- as Thunder Bear calls him in his account of the battle.

Ohiyesa said Crow King was a leader of the Indians' first counter-charge against Reno, which forced the American troopers to abandon their defensive line in the open and fall back to the timber along the river, where Crazy Horse's first charge of the battle hit Reno's men a few minutes later.
