Little Crow (Taoyateduta)

A chief of the Mdewakanton Dakota. His given name translates as "His Red Nation," (Taoyateduta) but he was known as Little Crow because of his father's name, Čhetáŋ Wakhúwa Máni, (literally, "Hawk that chases/hunts walking") which was mistranslated. He had a role in the negotiation of the Treaties of Traverse des Sioux and Mendota of 1851 and led Dakota forces in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.
