We just had a short day on this field. We were fortunate to sit through a great ranger program and then take a guided, bus tour with a Crow Indian that lived on this reservation (Big Beaked Bird Clan).

Dave,

There is another perspective. The real battle took place where Bentene and Reno dug in. This fight lasted for two days. There is a new book, written by a Native American that explores this take on the battle. I hope to pick it up in the next few weeks.

Very nice pictures. I was there for just a couple of hours years ago and would love to get back.
At that time, along the road to the Reno Battlefield there was a sort of kiosk where natives were selling crafts. It seems to me that they may have been Navajo and I could not understand why they were selling their goods on Crow land.
