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.

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. When they ran out of ammo, the men stood up and bared their chests then the women stood up, some with babies. They were all shot dead. Photo…
