Dull Knife

Dull Knife (b. Wahiev, also Tamela Pashme)

(?1810–?83) Northern Cheyenne war chief; born near the Rosebud River in present-day Montana. At first friendly to the whites, he turned to war following the Sand Creek (Colo.) massacre (1864). After his people were forced from their homeland into the Indian Territory (1870s), he led a dwindling group on an epic and ultimately successful journey back to the north country.
