Eagle Nest

Eagle Nest, a Southern Cheyenne warrior in 1876, fought under Chief Lame White Man in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Led by Chief Brave Bear, eight Southern Cheyennes and their families were visiting Lame White Man, a former southerner himself, at the time of the Battle of Little Big Horn.

"Gunfire sounded to the south. We southerners especially, could not understand the Sioux, but we knew it was an alarm. We knew the danger so we caught horses and rallied around our leaders. I heard Lame White Man call to us, 'young men, come with me, show your bravery.'"
El Reno Reservation, OK (earlier known as Darlinton) 1943
