Chief White Bull: 1849 – 1947. He was the nephew of Sitting Bull and participated in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Some believe he killed Custer. Prior to becoming a combatant against Custer, White Bull was already an accomplished fighter. He had taken part in at least 20 battles, against the US Army and other tribes.
