Born 1838. He first went on the war path at age eighteen; the party searched for the Pawnee, but finding only a deserted village, returned. Fast Elk never led a war-party, but fought in four great battles with other tribes, and participated in the Fetterman massacre in 1866. He counted coup once in a fight with the Apsaroke, when their village on Pryer creek was surrounded by the Sioux.
