Kills a Hundred

Kills a Hundred, an Oglala Sioux warrior in 1876, fought under Crazy Horse at the Battle of Little Big Horn, in which he killed two soldiers and captured six cavalry horses. In 1890, he was by his own statement among the more rabid of the Ghost Dancers and one of the last to surrender to the United States Army nearly a month after Wounded Knee.

"My name comes from the 'battle of a hundred slain,' in which I took part as a young warrior. I was only about nine years old then, but I was a 'moccasin carrier' (apprentice warrior), old enough to help elder warriors."
