Moses One Feather

Moses One Feather, an Oglala Sioux warrior aged 27 in 1876, was one of Crazy Horse's followers in the Battle of Little Big Horn, in which he counted two coups and killed one of Custer's troopers. During the Ghost Dance outbreak in 1890, One Feather and his family were ambushed by white outlaws and his first wife killed. He died in 1941, at age 92.

"Besides, it was hot and dusty, so I couldn't figure out why these Wasicuns wanted to fight us at this time, when there were so many of us."
Oglala, SD 1941
