Red Cloud and his Scarlet Blanket warriors

The picture below its titled 'Red Cloud and Indians'. It has multiple Indian Chiefs sitting together. I think they all look rather uncomfortable and very serious.

Born and raised in the Oglala Sioux Tride, Red Cloud rose up and became a war chief and was known for Red Cloud's War. He was born in 1822 and died of old age and natural causes in 1909. His native name was Mahpiua Luta.

Red Cloud's tribe, the Oglala Sioux belivied the everything had a spirt. Also they belivied that dreams and visions were ways to talk to spirts. They also belivied that the spirt White Buffalo gave tribes a sacred pipe in which they called 'Medicine Pipes'

Some Important conflicts Red Cloud fought in were The Grerat Sioux War of 1876-1877, it was aguinst George Custer and it was over land. Also he fought in Red Cloud's War which took place between 1866- 1868 aguinst the U.S army. The war ended with the Treaty of Fort Laramie.

Red Cloud's major opponents we General George Custer and the U.S army. His allies were the American Indian Plains Tride in Wyoming and Montana territores.
