    Pretty Nose (c. 1851 – after 1952) was an Arapaho war chief who participated in the Battle of the Little Bighorn. In some sources, Pretty Nose is called Cheyenne, although she was identified as Arapaho on the basis of her red, black and white beaded cuffs. The two tribes were allies at the Battle of the Little Bighorn and are still officially grouped together as the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes.

    A photograph taken by Laton Alton Huffman circa 1880 shows Pretty Nose with a young woman named Spotted Fawn. One source from the Montana Memory Project implies that they were sisters.  At least one other photo of Spotted Fawn alone exists and is held by the Art Institute of Chicago.

    Pretty Nose’s grandson, Mark Soldier Wolf, became an Arapaho tribal elder who served in the US Marine Corps during the Korean War. She witnessed his return to the Wind River Indian Reservation in 1952, at the age of 101.

    I saw this post hours ago and wanted to add colorized versions.
