There is a rich history within the Native Americans around the world, though there are many that remain ignorant to it. It is not a question of whether or not they are against learning about Native American peoples, simply that they are not sure on how or where to start. There are so many different peoples and cultures out there throughout the Americas that it is hard to know where to start. Here is this list of ten of the most famous Native Americans out there today, with their individual histories and stories. They each lived over a different span of time, and their unique stories make them into what we would call “folk heroes” today. Here are their histories.

Firstly, there is Red Cloud, from the tribe Oglala Lakota (Sioux) who lived from 1822-1909. He is known today as the man who faced the US military during what they call the Red Cloud's War, which was the battle for the rights to Powder Country in Northern Wyoming. Throughout this warm, Red Cloud (the battle was named after this fierce warrior) battled hard against the militants and gained his significance that way.
