Southern Cheyenne War Chief. Among the Cheyenne he was Ve'ho'enohnenehe and was known to the Sioux as Bearded Man, he is also identified as Hahk-o-ni or Mad Hearted Wolf. He was reportedly in the sweat lodge of Tall Sioux when Major Reno attacked the Cheyenne encampment, and helped his wife Twin Woman, his son Red Hat, and his daughter Crane Woman escape before he joined the Battle of the Greasy Grass. During the battle, Company C pressed toward the river, in an attempt to drive back Indians but were routed by a charge led by Lame White Man and his so called suicide boys on their flank. Wearing a captured cavalry coat, Lame White Man was shot and scalped by a Lakota warrior who mistook him for an army scout in the subsequent hand to hand fighting. He was one of only one of seven Cheyenne killed in fighting. One of the red granite memorials at the Little Bighorn Battlefield was erected in his honor in 1999. (bio by: Iola)
