Native American Chief. He was a Bannock War Chief and United States Army Indian Scout serving under General Oliver O. Howard in the 1877 Nez Perce Campaign, and under General George Armstrong Custer in the Rosebud Sioux War. The Bannock War of 1878 began when the Fort Hall Bannock Indians under Chief Buffalo Horn, found that settlers had cut up the marshes into fields, allowing livestock to destroy the camas roots that had been one of the Indians' major food sources. This led to a series of attacks in 1878. Army forces led by General Howard caught up with Chief Horn and his followers and the leaders were slain. Died at South Mountain, Idaho Territory.
