Crazy Horse
By Cathy Pearl

1     Not every Indian went to live on a reservation quietly. Some Indians fought back in order to keep their way of life the same. One of the Indians who fought back was Crazy Horse.
2     Crazy Horse was born in the 1840s. He was born along Rapid Creek in the area that would become South Dakota. His father was a medicine man who was also named Crazy Horse.
3     His mother died when he was young. His father then took her sister as a wife. This woman helped to raise Crazy Horse.
4     Crazy Horse started witnessing what the army did to his people at a very young age. This helped create his feelings toward the white settlers and their army.
