White Man Runs Him
Original name: Mahr-Itah-Thee-Dah-Ka-Roosh White Man Runs Him
Birth: 1858
Montana, USA
Death: Jun. 2, 1929
Lodge Grass
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

United States Army Crow Indian Scout. He served as a Private and scout for General George A. Custer during the ill-fated 1876 Big Horn Campaign. The son of Bull Chief and Offers Her Red Cloth, he enlisted on April 10, 1876 at the Crow Agency, Montana Territory, for six months in the 7th United States Infantry, but was attached to the 7th Cavalry for the expedition. He accompanied Lieutenant Charles Varnum on the trip to the Crow's Nest on June 25, and was assigned to the Custer striking column on the afternoon of June 25. During the ensuing battle he withdrew about 3:15 pm (Custer was killed about 4:30 pm) and joined Strikes Bear on the ridgetop, where he participated in the hilltop fight for a brief time. He withdrew once again and made contact with Colonel John Gibbon's Montana column, then returned to the Crow Agency. He briefly appeared in the film "Red Raiders" in 1927, and died at age 71 on his ranch at the Crow Agency; cause of death: chronic phthisis. His account of the battle is told in the work "The Custer Myth" by C. Graham, on pages 20 to 24. (bio by: Kit and Morgan Benson)
