Description

Details

Born in 1840, originally given the name Curly, Crazy Horse became the most
feared warrior by his enemies and the greatest leader of the Lakotas. He was
not a typical Lakota warrior: his hair was light brown, possessed hazel eyes
and had rather light colored skin. He was quiet and very much a loner. Later
he was renamed Tasunke Witko ~ Crazy Horse. A vision he had made him a
Thunder Being, lightning gave him power over is enemy. He was instructed
by his mentor and spiritual leader, Buffalo Horn Chips, that in order to protect
him in battle to paint lightning bolts down his horse’s legs, to never tie
up his horse’s tail like most warriors, not to wear a war bonnet but rather one
or two eagle feathers in his hair, and to always wear a sacred stone behind
his left ear with a larger one under his left arm. For war paint, he was told
to cover the exposed body with white hail spots. Before battle he would toss
sacred dirt from a prairie dog hole over the horse’s head and rump, then rub
some into the horse’s body. Crazy Horse was a fierce and determined war
leader fighting against General Custer at the Little Big Horn. At Fort Robinson,
Nebraska, he was stabbed to death in 1877.
