November has been officially designated National Native American Indian Recognition Month. This action might well have been taken due to the fact that Fall, referred to as Indian Summer, is the favorite season of the American Indian. Richard Green gave us a document written by Lone Wolf, a Kiowa Indian chief who witnessed the battle of Washita in 1868, when General George A. Custer attacked and massacred the Black Kettle village near present-day Cheyenne, Oklahoma.
