Red Feather's Description
RED FEATHER'S ACCOUNT
Q: I HAVE HEARD that when he was a young man Crazy Horse was great friends with a man named Hump, or Big Breast, or High Back Bone. We would like to know more about that.
A: High Back Bone [AKA High Backbone] was about the same age as Crazy Horse and was related to him. They used to go on war expeditions together. One time they went on a war expedition against the Shoshones, and High Back Bone was killed in the fight. I was in that fight. Four days later Crazy Horse and I went back to find High Back Bone and bury him. We didn't find anything but the skull and a few bones. High Back Bone had been eaten by coyotes already. There weren't any Shoshones around. When the Shoshones found out whom they had killed, they beat it.
