Plains Indian warriors varied in age from teens into their thirties. Being superb horsemen and skilled marksmen with bow and arrow, these warriors used their athletic skills and knowledge of the terrain to trap their enemies. Although they often fought and lived together, this gathering of so many Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho warriors during the winter was unique. Because of a Spiritual Leader's vision prior to the confrontation, these tribes referred to the Fetterman Fight as the battle of "One Hundred in the Hands."American Horse . . .       . . . was an Oglala Sioux, who may have killed Captain Fetterman. His description of Fetterman's death matched military autopsy reports. He became a prominent leader of his people during their cultural change from nomadic to reservation life.Crazy Horse . . . . . . was a young Oglala Sioux warrior and member of the decoy party at the Fetterman Fight. Ten years later he led warriors at the battles of the Rosebud and Little Big Horn. As one of the last Sioux leaders to surrender to the U.S. Government, he was killed at Fort Robinson in 1877.Wild Hog . . .       . . . was a leader of the Cheyenne tribe. He fought in the Dull Knife battle and participated in the Cheyenne march from Oklahoma to Fort Robinson.Other Indian leaders were Iron Tail, Walking Rabbit, Painted Thunder of the Cheyenne, Black Leg and Black Leg and Black Shield of the Sioux.
