Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument Professional Review and Guide

"Formerly called Custer Battlefield, the name of this national monument has been rightfully changed to recognize the Indians who also fought in this famous battle on the hills above the Little Bighorn River. This 1876 battle marked the last major victory for the Northern Plains Indians, including Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, to preserve their traditional way of life. The Crow people are also called Absarokee, which means “children of the largebeaked bird.”

In frontier times, the tribe was known for its sign language, which relied on much flapping of the arms, thus suggesting the association with ravens and crows. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, and helpful general information."
