The Trail of Painted Ponies


Cheyenne Warrior - The Trail of Painted Ponies

“Dog Soldiers” were the military elite within the Cheyenne culture on the Northern Plains during the mid-1850s, when their homelands were besieged by fortune seekers and homesteaders. Respected as well as feared, these warriors were sworn to protect their people at all costs. To cover the retreat of a companion or village under attack, the bravest among them would stay behind and stake themselves to the ground with a “dog sash” secured to a lance, remaining there until death if necessary.
