In June of 1876, members of various northern Plains tribes gathered at the Little Bighorn River to form the largest Indian encampment in recorded American history. The huge gathering, called Tiospaye, encompassed over 1,000 lodges housing approximately 7,000 men, women, and children. The subsequent defeat of General Custer and the Seventh Cavalry would forever alter the course of Native American history. In over 200 vintage photographs, this new book showcases images of the lifestyle of the encampment and the many brave leaders who fought at the infamous Battle of Little Bighorn, including Sitting Bull and the author's grandfather, Feather Earring.
