The Arikara War of 1823 between the US and the Arikara took place near the Missouri River. Arikara warriors had previously attacked a trapping expedition traveling on the river. The US responded with a force of 230 soldiers, 750 Sioux, and 50 trappers. This was the first military conflict between the US and the western native Americans, setting the tone for future encounters between Americans and the Crow and Blackfeet. The Arikara were not completely defeated.

Chief Gall of the Lakota Hunkpapa Sioux. Circa 1840-1895. His name was not given to him by a white man but via an incident involving the eating of an animal's gall bladder. He was a great chief, and military chief to Sitting Bull. He defended his people during what later became known as "Custer's Last Stand". He was later appointed a Judge of the Court of Indian Affairs in 1889 and became an envoy to Washington, DC. He refused Buffalo Bills request to become part of the Wild West Show.
