(Please note these coins have blemishes or spotting from the start)
Tasunke Witko, literally translated from Lakota as "His Horse is Crazy", was a respected war leader of the Oglala Lakota. More commonly referred to as Crazy Horse, he fought against the U.S. federal government to preserve the land and traditions of the Lakota way of life, participating in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in June 1876. After surrendering to U.S. troops under General Crook in 1877, the prominent leader was fatally wounded while resisting imprisonment at Camp Robinson in present-day Nebraska.
Crazy Horse's choice to defy the U.S. Federal government in order to protect his people and culture is an inspiration to any and all champions of freedom. In the view of author Chris Hedges, "There are few resistance figures in American history as noble as Crazy Horse...his ferocity of spirit remains a guiding light for all who seek lives of defiance."
