Lame White Man


Lame White Man

Lame White Man, or "Ve'ho'enohnenehe", was a Southern Cheyenne battle chief who fought at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, June 25, 1876 and was killed there. He was also known as Bearded Man (to the Lakota) and Mad Hearted Wolf ("Hahk o ni"). He was the husband of Twin Woman and father to Red Hat and Crane Woman.

During the battle he wore a captured cavalry jacket found tied to the cantle of a saddle. Later a Minniconjou Lakota warrior (believed to be Little Crow) mistook him for an Indian scout and killed him before he could realize his mistake.

One of the red granite memorial stones at the Little Bighorn Battlefield was erected in his honor on Memorial Day, 1999.
