Running Eagle ~ Blackfoot tribe
Running Eagle, aka Brown Weasel Woman, was a Blackfoot woman who rescued her father after his horse was shot by an enemy tribe. The name Running Eagle was bestowed upon her for her bravery, and she was invited to join a warrior society, and acted as a female war chief. She was eventually clubbed to death by members of the Flathead tribe in 1850 when she was caught trying to steal their horses during a battle.

Female warrior. Gotta give her props. Family came first and kicked enough tail to be remembered.
