I have recently finished editing 'Monahsetah - The Life of a Custer Captive', which is the result of over twenty years of research by the late Peter Harrison. Further details are on the 'Authors' Corner' section of these boards, under 'Books and Media'. Alternatively, you can find details on the 'Monahsetah - A Life' facebook page.
This is a full researched and sourced biography of Monahsetah, produced with the full support and co-operation of her descendants.

A little more info: Monahsetah was taken captive after the Battle of Washita River, the destruction of Black Kettle's village. She was just one of many Cheyenne women who were repeatedly raped and passed around gambling tables as prizes. Custer "Selected" her along with a few other women. This is how it started.
