Chief Iron White Man

Chief Iron White Man, a minor band chief of the Oglala Sioux, fought under Crazy Horse at the Battle of Little Big Horn, in which he captured a revolver from a soldier-chief (officer) and nice cavalry horses.

"Crazy Horse, along with most of us, was painted for war. He pained his body with hailstone marks, having stripped to a breechclout. His face was streaked with blue lightening."
Oglala, SD 1938
