Little Raven

Little Raven signed the Fort Wise Treaty of 1861 but became frustrated when whites failed to comply with the agreement. His disappointment turned to anger following the massacre of Cheyenne and Arapaho at Sand Creek, Colorado, in 1864. Still, Little Raven sought peace and accepted the terms of the Medicine Lodge Treaty in 1867. Under that agreement the Southern Arapaho accepted a reservation between the Arkansas and Cimarron rivers in Indian Territory (present Oklahoma).
