Chief Dull Knife, Cheyenne Hero

Ethel Taylor

Dull Knife, called Morning Star by the Cheyenne, was the famous Cheyenne chief best known for his active resistance to Western expansion and the Federal government. He was a hero among the Cheyenne who told many stories about his incredible exploits, everything from saving his little sister from being trampled by a stampeding herd of buffalo when he was just a boy to fighting a grizzly bear as a young man. It is due to the courage and determination held by Morning Star and other Cheyenne leaders that the Northern Cheyenne still possess a homeland in their traditional country (present-day south-eastern Montana).
