Born about 1828. River Crow; Not Mixed clan; Fox organization. Obtained his owl-medicine by fasting. Won three "dakshe," captured a tethered horse and three guns-one of the latter from a Pend d'Oreille chief, another at such close quarters that the enemy thrust the muzzle against the Apsaroke's mouth in an attempt to shoot him. Led nearly thirty successful war parties, in four of which he himself killed each time two Piegan. One of the greatest warriors and war-leaders of the tribe. Died in 1907.
