Lozen (Chiricahua Apache) was known as a fearless warrior, battle strategist, and healer in New Mexico and Arizona. Buffalo Calf Road Woman (Northern Cheyenne) fought next to her husband at the Battle of Little Bighorn and was even believed to have delivered the fatal blow to George Armstrong Custer. Today on Native America Calling, as we wrap up National Women’s History Month, we learn more about these two Native female warriors and others with Carol Murray ([Blackfeet] Pikuni), retired administrator for the Blackfeet Community College; Eryn Wise (Jicarilla Apache and Laguna Pueblo), land and body sovereignty advocate; and Sgt. First Class Keshon Smith (Ft. McDermitt Paiute and Shosone Indian Reservation), president of Native American Women Warriors (NAWW).
