Chief Low Dog

Authentic Native American Lakota Mitchell Zephier Chief Low Dog pendant with necklaceLow Dog became a war chief at age 14. In 1876 he joined Sitting Bull on the Little Bighorn. Low Dog's account of the battle is one of history's best known. Here is what he said about the battle:

"At the time we Oglalas had no thought that we would ever fight the whites. Then I heard some people talking that the chief of the white men wanted the Indians to live where he ordered and do as he said, and he would feed and clothe them. I was called into council with the chief and wise men, and we had a talk about that. My judgment was , why should I allow any man to support me against my will anywhere, so long as I have hands and so long as I am an able man, not a boy.

"I said, Why should I be kept as a humble man, when I am a brave warrior and on my own lands? The game is mine, and the hills,and the valleys, and the white man has no right to say where I shall go, or what I shall do. If any white man tries to destroy what is mine,or take what is mine, or take my lands, I will take my gun, get on my horse, and go punish him.

I called to my men: "This is a good day to die. Follow me."
