    Walking Woman, also known as Amache, was the daughter of Southern Cheyenne leader Lone Bear, who was killed in the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864. Amache, who later married Colorado rancher John Prowers, was one of several Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians who were promised reparations for the massacre in the Little Arkansas Treaty of 1865.

    Little Raven led an Arapaho band on the Front Range of Colorado during the mid-nineteenth century. His people were among several Cheyenne and Arapaho bands slaughtered by US troops during the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864. He signed the Little Arkansas Treaty of 1865, hoping that his people would receive the promised reparations for the massacre. To this date, the descendants of the massacre victims have not received what was promised.
