White "Buffalo" Calf, Piegan Chief, died at Washington in 1903. He was almost 80 yrs old. He was chief of his tribe for about a generation. In 1855, known as "Feather", he signed a treaty negotiated by Gov. Stevens. As a warrior, White Calf was famous among the tribes. With the passing of inter tribal warfare he peacefully worked for the good of his people.
Buffalo Calf Road Woman (1850s-1878), was a Northern Cheyenne woman who saved her wounded warrior brother Chief Comes in Sight, in the Battle of Rosebud (as it was called by the US) in 1876. She fought next to her husband in the Battle of the Little Bighorn that same year. In 2005 Northern Cheyenne storytellers broke more than 100 years of silence about the battle, and they credited her with striking the blow that knocked General George Armstrong Custer off his horse before he died.
