Chief Stranger Horse (Tasunke Tokeca) wearing two Washington Peace Medals. "Chief Stranger Horse, 78 years old, died Friday morning May 19,1922...of tuberculosis which developed from a cold contracted last fall when he was a guest of President Harding in Washington. A noted warrior and diplomat, this was the last of many trips to Washington in the interest of his people. During the early part of his life he was noted as a warrior and in many wars with other Indian tribes he gathered many scalps from his enemies, but he was never known to raise disturbances against the whites. He served in the U.S. Army as Indian Scout in Co. A under Gen. Crook in 1876-77, in an expedition against the northern Sioux and Cheyenne in one of the worst winters known in this country." (Mellette County Pioneer)
