Hunkpapa Lakota maps of the Battle of Little Bighorn. From left to right: a Hunkpapa map and maps attributed to Little Soldier (Hunkpapa), Rain In The Face (Hunkpapa), and Sitting Bull with a military cartographer. Shared with permission by Dakota Wind,

On this anniversary of the Battle of the Little Bighorn (known in Lakota as P?eží Slá Wakpála Okíchize, "Battle of the Greasy Grass Stream") we share with permission a series of Hunkpapa Lakota maps with comments and captions posted by Dakota Wind,

He writes:

Note the orientation, south is at the top of the page in all but the last. There's a lot more maps drawn by other participants, but my post here focuses on Hunkpapa Lakota maps.
I saw a post by Mr. Jon Eagle about there being five camps. I can't disagree with him, but I'd like to share that from maps drawn by our own people, not everyone says there were five camps at Little Big Horn.

Little Soldier (Hunkpapa) drew this map of Little Big Horn.

Rain In The Face (Hunkpapa) drew this map of the Little Big Horn, notations on map by a someone else.

This map is attributed to Sitting Bull, but in actuality it was Sitting Bull and a military cartographer (note the northerly orientation to this map).
