Known for his prowess as a war chief and his devotion to his people, often traveling to Washington D.C with Crow delegations to discuss and fight for Crow rights, including land rights.

Pretty Shield (1856–1944) was a medicine woman of the Crow Nation. Her autobiography was written with the help of Frank B. Linderman, who interviewed her using an interpreter and sign language.
