Roman Nose a.k.a. Hook Nose (Woqini) (c.1835-1868), was a Native American of the Northern Cheyenne, and possibly the greatest and most influential warrior during the Plains Indian War of the 1860s. Considered invincible in combat, this fierce warrior distinguished himself in battle to such a high degree that the U.S. military mistook him for the Chief of the entire Cheyenne nation.
Years after Wounded Knee, Iron Tail, an Oglala Sioux, was invited to Washington, D.C. by General Nelson Miles. While in Washington, D.C.

On October 21, 1913 Iron Tail received a commendation certificate of "good character" from the U.S. Government.

Cheyenne leader Dull Knife and his band had escaped from Indian Territory back to Dakota but they were soon betrayed and arrested. At Fort Robinson the men were imprisoned. The women approached them and said it was better to die than to live like slaves. Guns were smuggled to the men by the women and they escaped to the nearest ditch to make a stand.
