Little Bear •

Little Bear was Cheyenne, and he’s pictured here in 1875 in traditional dress with impressive beadwork. A decade before this photo was taken, however, he had the misfortune to witness the Sand Creek massacre of his people. U.S. cavalrymen killed about 150 Cheyenne in a surprise dawn attack in Sand Creek, Colorado. Even worse, the soldiers also burned the settlement down.
