Little Bighorn To Host Anniversary Events

On Tuesday, June 25, Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument will host a day of remembrance to commemorate the 148th anniversary of The Battle of Little Bighorn.

This year’s commemoration theme is inspired by Wooden Leg, a Northern Cheyenne warrior who fought against Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer. Years later, despite the challenges and battles that had taken place, Wooden Leg said, “we once were enemies, and now we are friends.” This sentiment of friendship continues today through the relationships and collaborative efforts involved to co-steward the land where the battle took place.

Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana, will be hosting a 5k Run/walk in the morning.

Park entrance fees will be waived for the commemoration.
