"I, Ta-o-ya-te-du-ta, am not a coward. I will die with you." With this statement, Little Crow reluctantly put himself at the head of the Indian forces in the Dakota War of 1862. Twice before he had risked his life to lead his people. To become chief of his band he had told the warriors to kill him or follow him. Tribal spokesman, politician, war leader -- these three positions were worth his life to Little Crow but created for him a never-resolved personal dilemma.
