Four years after the Sand Creek massacre, Black Kettle and his wife took the rest of the Cheyenne survivers to a new reservation at washita River in Indian territory. But at dawn on november 22 1868 when the Cheyenne villiage were sleeping, the 7th U.S cavallry regement led by George.A.Custer charged the peaceful villiage.



Once again Black Kettle saw how his people were slaughtered, men mostly eldery, women and children were shot and run down by the soldiers horses. When Black Kettle and his wife tried to ride out to meet Custer they were carrying a white flag and hoping to stop the attack, but they were both shot at sight.

Afterwards Custer, just like Chivington braged about how he had beaten the Indians in this so called battle. But 5 years later Custer him self had to pay with his own life under a real battle against the Cheyenne and Sioux-Indians in the battle of Little Big Horn also known as Custers last stand.



We want to take good tidings home to our people, that they may sleep in peace I want you to give all the chiefs of the soldiers here to understand that we are for peace, and that we have made peace, that we may not be mistaken by them for enemies. Black Kettle (Motavato), Southern Cheyenne
