Red Moon

Among the Chiefs at Sand Creek was old Yellow Wolf. His band suffered heavily, and the old Chief, as well as his brother were killed. Yellow Wolf's son Red Moon (pictured) survived, and became a respected leader until his death in 1901. Today, some Cheyenne still refer to themselves as the Red Moon people.
