The Cheyenne were forced into exile on reservations in the Dakotas and Indian Territory by terms of a treaty signed in 1868. They did not adjust well to the harshness of reservation life. They longed for their former freedom in the faraway hills of Wyoming; Various bands bolted the reservations in the valiant but vain attempt to return to their homeland. Here, after fleeing Indian Territory, a band of fugitive Cheyenne are run to the ground on a forsaken, windswept bluff in northwest Kansas in 1875. They dig in to make a stand, and their desperation foreshadows their fate.
