"White Thunder is said to have been born in the Wazhazha camp, but after 1866 he was a chief of the Loafer band. He had a fine reputation as a warrior and the Brul├ęs say that he was selected by the tribal soldiers to shoot Captain Fouts in the Horse Creek affair in 1865. He rode up to Fouts and shot him off his horse, a deed the Sioux regarded as glorious. In later years White Thunder was regarded on the reservation as a progressive." (George Hyde: A Sioux Chronicle)
