In 1876, the 7th Regiment of the US Cavalry clashed with the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyanne, and Arapaho tribes as the United States government continued their quest to seize western lands and force Native Americans onto reservations speckled throughout the west. The battles that ensued along the valleys and ridges of the Little Bighorn River was a major win for the Indigenous people, fighting to retain their culture and way of life.
