Not every Native American went quietly to live on a reservation. Some Native Americans fought back in order to keep their way of life. One of the Native Americans who fought back was Crazy Horse.
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.
His mother died when he was young. His father then took her sister as a wife. This woman helped to raise Crazy Horse.
