Chief Little Wound

Chief of Kiyuksa Oglala Lakota

Approx. 1835 to 1899

 

Little Wound’s father, Chief Old Bull Bear, was the chief of the Eastern Oglala. After his father’s killing (allegedly by a shot fired by Red Cloud during a drunken brawl) in 1841, Little Wound was raised by his elder brother Bull Bear jr and other elder members of his family, such as his uncle One Eye . After his brother’s death in a fight with the Shoshone, Little Wound became itancan of the Kiyuksa. Red Cloud was somewhat instrumental in raising Little Wound’s status among the agency chiefs. In the following years, Little Wound’s position became more and more progressive to the eyes of US agents.

Little Wound was present at the battle of Massacre Canyon on August 5, 1873, in Nebraska. It was one of the last battles between the Pawnee and the Sioux and the last large scale battle between Native American tribes in the area of the present day United States of America

At an Indian scout reorganization at Red Cloud Agency in 1877 the Oglala’s formed the majority of Company B, to whose leadership Little Wound was promoted as first sergeant. Major Chiefs Red Cloud, Young Man Afraid of His Horses, Yellow Bear and American Horse served as his sergeants. Because of that he became a political opponent to Crazy Horse as well as Red Cloud at the Red Cloud Agency, and he was not among the ones Crazy Horse tried to elect for a journey to Washington the same fall. Eventually he joined the delegation to Washington.

In later life, Little Wound was a powerful advocate of the Ghost dance movement among the Lakota in 1890. Despite having been a devote Episcopalian for many years, Little Wound became a Ghost Dancer (himself having a vision of the prophet and of the “other world”) and his band joined for a while the “hostiles”, returning to the agency only a while before Wounded Knee. In February 1891 he made another trip to Washington along with other Lakota’s.

He died in the winter of 1899,
