Elk Thunder

Elk Thunder, a Sichangu (Burnt Thigh) or Brule Sioux warrior aged 23 in 1876, fought under Crow Dog in the Battle of Little Big Horn, in which he counted four coups and took two scalps.

"I was 23 the summer had the battle. I remember that day was very hot. Most of us were sleeping late in our tipis."
