. . . one of the Cheyenne members of the decoy party, is with you. He is riding a black horse belonging to Little Wolf, his brother, and is wearing Sweet Medicine Chief's scalp shirt. His horse, tired from decoying the soldiers, stumbles during the charge.Big Nose is hit and two warriors place him in the depression before you. His last request is that his head be placed up hill where he can breathe fresh air. After the battle, he dies and is buried with other warriors on the bluffs between here and the main camps. You recognize his bravery as a decoy and his death will become an honored account in the oral history of the Cheyenne.
