Little Bighorn Battlefield

On June 25, 1876, approximately 7,000 Lakota, Cheyenne, and Arapaho, including 1,500 - 2,000 warriors, encamped below on the Greasy Grass River (Little Bighorn). Under the political and spiritual leadership of Tatanka-Iyotanka (Sitting Bull), they refused to be restricted to their reservation and sought to follow their traditional nomadic way of life. "We camped in the valley along the south side of the Greasy Grass. It was a very big village and you could hardly count the tipis. Along the side toward the east was the Greasy Grass, with some timber along it, and it was running from the melting of the snow in the Bighorn Mountains."
- Black Elk, Oglala Lakota
"We went over the divide and we camped in the valley of the Little Bighorn. Everybody thought: Now we are out of the white man's country. He can live there, we will live here."
- Two Moons, Northern Cheyenne
