RUNNING ANTELOPE

 

 

Hunkpapa Chief

 

Running Antelope was one of four Hunkpapa principal chiefs who were close advisors to Sitting Bull during the Plains Indian wars.

Well known for his bravery in war, his oratory, and his talents at diplomacy, Running Antelope believed that compromise with the whites was in the Sioux's best interests.

Gradually, he moved away from Sitting Bull, who maintained an independent posture throughout his life.
