The movie this week is a classic (which means it is slightly older). It is titled Little Big Man and details the fictional story of a white boy named Jack Crabb, who is taken in by the Cheyennes and grows up within this nation. Though the movie (and the book upon which it is based) are fictional, it deals with historical events, including General George A. Custers attack against Black Kettles Cheyennes at the Washita River in 1868 (which I did not mention in class) and the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. Black Kettle was the chief of the town at Sand Creek that had been attacked by Col. Chivington in 1864. Here are some questions as you watch the movie:
