Crazy Horse
The most famous war leader of the Lakota, he became feared by other tribes in the early 1850s for his skill in battle and continued fighting against U.S. expansion until his death. From a young age, he reportedly had trance visions of himself as a great warrior. He became an expert at luring cocky U.S. battalions into ambushes by pretending to be an injured, vulnerable target. Most famously, he led his tribe into the Battle of Little Bighorn, which left 268 soldiers dead including George Custer and two of his brothers.
