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.
Shuh-shee-ahsh (Curley), vintage postcard image of the youngest of several Crow scouts attached to General George Armstrong Custer's 7th Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana on June 25, 1876. Not a combatant in the battle, he survived to tell the story of what happened, and died of pneumonia on the Crow reservation in 1923.
* 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 *
Hairy Moccasin (also known as Esh-sup-pee-me-shish) was a Crow scout for George Armstrong Custer’s 7th Cavalry during the 1876 campaign against the Sioux and Northern Cheyenne. He was a survivor of the Battle of the Little Big Horn. After scouting the encampment on the banks of the Little Big Horn River, they reported to Custer. After Custer refused their advice to wait for reinforcements, Hairy Moccasin was dismissed by Custer about an hour before the last stand. Circa 1908.
