Ogima Little Wolf's Diaspora
He is an intersting historical figure of the 1878-1879 Northern Cheyenne Exodus. However, my suspicions tell me that ogima Little Wolf was not affiliated with ogima Dull Knife. Most likely ogima Little Wolf surrended to the Americans in late 1877 in Montana and was forced to settle down on the Crow Reservation. He obviously thought the worst (he knew the whites were going to force the Anishinabek on the Crow Reservation to lose their Anishinabe identity) and thought it be of the best interest for his subjects that he lead them off the Reservation. That is what occurred in late 1878. They were eventually captured by American soldiers stationed at Fort Keough, Montana. Ogima Little Wolf first negotiated with Colonel William P. Clark before surrendering. Now during these negotiations, ogima Little Wolf probably made it clear that he wanted a new Reservation for the Anishinabek who lived on the Crow Reservation.
Colonel William P. Clark probably told ogima Little Wolf that he had not the power to have the Reservation created but would send his proposal to the President. With that in mind, ogima Little Wolf did peacefully surrender and his subjects were either returned to the Crow Reservation where they probably made up the majority of the population, or they remained at the Fort Keogh Military Reservation. Nearly 5 years later, the eastern part of the Crow Reservation was set aside for the Cheyenne Anishinabek. However, during 1879, another large group of Anishinabek, probably from western Kansas, continued on with their diaspora towards the west into Colorado. Those who forced their way into northwestern Colorado, continued their diaspora westward into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and Utah. The Ute War of 1879 was a war between these Anishinabek and whites.
