**SPOILERS** In spite of the really sketchy history, I liked this episode. It is true that the Cheyenne would capture kids and raise them as their own, and in several cases, they did not want to go back to white ways; maybe they liked the "Way of Earth" (Jimmy Looks Twice, "Thunderheart, 1992") better. The Cheyenne love children, and would have taken good care of them. He was raised from when he was captured, when he was 2yrs. old, so he was Cheyenne. Fort Dodge, Kansas, was an outpost on the Santa Fe Trail, and most likely would not have had the strength to support an attempt to control a breakout of Little Wolf, and Dull Knife. This breakout really happened, and although it was very costly for the Northern Cheyenne, it was eventually successful. The 3rd Cav? - hard to find information about them in this dramatic chase. Most of their units were being transferred to Arizona to help corral Geronimo. Matt was definitely wrong about that result; The Cheyenne outfoxed the U.S.cavalry at almost every turn, being captured only when they were starving and freezing. Their incredible determination and courage are legendary.
