mountain man finds himself in the midst of a group of Crow warriors,
which was not necessarily dangerous because the Crows, for the most part,
remained on fairly friendly terms with the whites. When
he gets to camp, however, he may find to his sorrow that he is missing
something out of his pack. While some of the warriors divert his
attention by yelling and gesturing, another is reaching in to see what
he may find.
Despite their status as non-hostiles, the Crows saw
nothing wrong with stealing whatever they could get their hands on,
from camp goods
to rifles to horses. They considered it their right to exact a toll
inasmuch as the whites were invading their own rightful territory. Some
Crows eventually became scouts for the U.S. Army against their enemy
neighbors. Crow scouts warned Custer about the
danger he faced at the Little Big Horn, but he chose not to heed them.
