Little Wolfioanna/ionaF(c. 1820 – 1904) Little Wolf (Cheyenne: O'kohomoxhaahketa, sometimes transcribed 'Ohcumgache' or 'Ohkomhakit', more correctly translated Little Coyote). A Northern Cheyenne Chief, he was known as a great military tactician and led a dramatic escape from confinement in Oklahoma back to the Northern Cheyenne homeland in 1878. Born in present day Montana, by the mid-1850s, Little Wolf had become a prominent chieftain of the northern Cheyenne, leading a group of warriors called the 'Elk Horn Scrapers' during the Northern Plains Wars. He fought in Red Cloud's War, the war for the Bozeman Trail, which lasted from 1866 to 1868. As chief, he signed the Treaty of Fort Laramie. He was chosen one of the 'Old Man' chiefs among the Council of Forty-Four, a high honor in traditional Cheyenne culture, was also chosen as Sweet Medicine Chief, bearer of the spiritual incarnation of Sweet Medicine, a hero of the Cheyennes. Following the defeat of Morning Star - Dull Knife/Grenadier by Col. Ranald S. Mackenzie in November 1876, Little Wolf was forced onto a reservation in Oklahoma's Indian Territory. Around 1878, he and Dull Knife led almost 300 Cheyenne from their reservation near Fort Reno, Oklahoma, through Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakota Territory into the Montana Territory, their ancestral home. During the journey, they eluded the U.S. cavalry, which was trying to capture them. The two groups split up after reaching Nebraska, and while Dull Knife's party was eventually forced to surrender near Fort Robinson, Little Wolf's group eventually made their way to Montana where there were eventually allowed to remain.Group 1: Native American
