According to Kingsley Bray, Big Star aka Wicampi Tanka, a Brule Lakota, was made a shirt-wearer in 1868 together with Black Crow, Crow Dog and Looking Horse.
A portrait of him is – as I write – still available on Ebay. On the backside of the picture is stated that Big Star was present in the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
Big Star signed theSioux Treaty of 1876 at the Spotted Tail Agency on September 23, 1876 and the following year the Agreement of 1877.
In 1879 he sent his children Young Bird aka Morgan Big Star and Little Girl aka Rebecca Big Star to Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania. In Rebecca´s student information card at Carlisle Big Star was considered a Loafer.
