about

The fifteen Sioux (and one Cheyenne) who speak in Lakota Recollections of the Custer Fight witnessed Custer’s Last Stand. Their testimony sheds light on what happened at the Little Bighorn on the bloodiest of Sundays, June 25, 1876. Flying Hawk, Standing Bear, He Dog, Red Feather, Moving Robe Woman, Eagle Elk, White Bull, Hollow Horn Bear, and other Indian survivors of the Custer fight were interviewed during the early decades of the twentieth century by men genuinely interested in the historical truth, including Judge Eli S. Ricker, General Hugh L. Scott, John G. Neihardt, and Walter S. Campbell. The interviews are collected here with introductions and notes by the editor.
Richard G. Hardorff is the author of Hokahey! A Good Day to Die! The Indian Casualties of the Custer Fight and Cheyenne Memories of the Custer Battle. Jerome A. Greene is a historian with the National Park Service and author of Yellowstone Command: Colonel Nelson A. Miles and the Great Sioux War, 1876–1877 (Nebraska 1991).
