Greene, Lakota and Cheyenne: Indian Views of the Great Sioux War, 1876-1877, 1994 : Introduction ("The Great Sioux War comprised a series of sequential battles and skirmishes that arrayed elements of the U.S. Army against diverse tribes of Teton, or western, Sioux and Northern Cheyenne Indians during a period of fifteen months from March 1876 through May 1877. The conflict embraced fifteen encounters of varying magnitude that ranged across an extensive landscape encompassing parts of present-day Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota...The two tribes involved in the Great Sioux War, the Teton Sioux, or Lakotas, and the Northern Cheyennes, while linguistically unrelated, nonetheless possessed cultural similarities that had influenced their parallel courses by the mid-1870s."), Table of Contents ("Chapter 10.
