Red Cloud’s War Exhibit


CUSTER, SD – The Indian Museum of North America® is proud to present a temporary exhibit on the 151st Anniversary of the Battle of the Hundred in The Hand. Red Cloud’s War opens on December 1st in the Native American Educational and Cultural Center® at Crazy Horse Memorial and is free to the public with admission. The exhibit, which focuses on Red Cloud as a strategist and the methods he used to outwit Federal forces, is open through January 31st. Taking a glimpse at what it took to defeat westward expansion for a time, visitors can see items attributed to Red Cloud himself, such as his cane and war club. Children of all ages can try their hand at Red Cloud’s strategies with chance games that test their own ability to maneuver the Plains in hopes of victory. We hope you will join us as we take a brief look at the genius of Red Cloud’s strategy and unifying power which shut down the American Army on the Bozeman Trail.
