Quick Reference

Plains tribe of the Sioux family, which once ranged along the upper Yellowstone and Big Horn rivers of Wyoming and Montana. The Crow were nomadic hunters and warriors, conducted a constant warfare with the Blackfoot, and aided the U.S. army against the Sioux. They are described as predatory ruffians in The Adventures of Captain Bonneville and in Beckwourth's Life, but F. B. Linderman's American gives a more favorable view of them.
