Little Crow (b. Taheton Wakawa Mini)

(?1820–63) Mdewakanton (Santee) Sioux; born near present-day St. Paul, Minn. Friendly with whites to the point of helping them track down "hostile" Indians, he was said by some to have been boastful and often drunk. But in 1862, rebelling against his people's deteriorating condition, he was one of the leaders in an uprising of the Sioux centered around New Ulm, Minn. Some 200 to 300 white settlers were reported killed; within six weeks, some 1,000 Sioux were captured by volunteer forces and eventually 39 were executed. Little Crow escaped capture, only to be killed by a white settler some months later while picking berries with his son.

The boy grinned and looked away into the distance, 'Look at India!' he said.
