Custer's Scout Curley Crow Brave" circa 1879. Pinned by indus® in honor of the indigenous people of North America who have influenced our indigenous medicine and spirituality by virtue of their being a member of a tribe from the Western Region through the Plains including the beginning of time until tomorrow.
* Curley ~ Scout to General George Custer. Curly is remembered for having brought the earliest tidings of the massacre of George Armstrong Custer's troops at the Battle of Little Bighorn. Claiming to be the only survivor of Custer's Last Stand, the 17 year old Crow scout provided a confused and incredible account of Custer's annihilation. Sixty years of retelling the story added no clarity to what role Curly really played in the battle ~ Artist by: steeelll *

curley, ashishishe, crow scout that helped guide Custer/7th cavalry to Little Bighorn in1876 in pursuit of what the white man considered to be hostile Sioux & Cheyenne forces under Crazy Horse, Gall & Sitting Bull.These man were merely trying to defend their way of life. He's believed to be sole survivor of the 5 companies that rode w/ Custer. I assume that was purely by accident 'cause he was an Indian. by d.f. barry, 1878.
