Overview of guided day tours
It is said that history is written by the victors, but the Battle of the Little Bighorn has proven to be the exception to the rule. Some say more ink has been spilled on the epic encounter than blood was on the battlefield, but of the thousands of books and articles, scarcely a handful have been published from Lakota and Cheyenne historians – the descendants of the victors.
Of course you will have a great time on your tour, but our guide's responsibility is not just to you.
Go Native America guides relate this story for the ancestors, as though the battle participants are standing with you, listening. And their goal is to be sure the story (which cost so many lives) is told in a way that would make those participants nod, and agree that the truth is being told of their actions, deeds and sacrifices.

Overview of Ride & Guide
To other tour companies, the mission is simply to have a few guides learn enough basic information to entertain visitors, load as many mini buses from Billings as they can, and make money. To us, this is the difference between a tour and a tribal experience at the Little Bighorn.
Ride and Guide gives you it all - the opportunity to ride the battlefield and learn from trial guides who of course know the military history intimately too. Take this opportunity for the ultimate experience and walk back in time to 1876.

The Little Bighorn Battlefield, Montana is possibly the only battlefield site in the US where the monument is dedicated to the losing side. Our tours redress the balance that is so sadly lacking in the official interpretation at the Little Bighorn site. There were never 10,000 warriors at the Little Bighorn, there were never ‘Indians circling the wagons’ like in the Hollywood movies, and although who won the Battle of Little Bighorn is well-known, the Battle of Little Bighorn significance is not.
Come with us and find out the true answers to the searing questions visitors have; what caused the Battle of Little Bighorn, who killed Custer; and how did Custer really die at the Little Bighorn. Perhaps most important… how the ramifications of the fight STILL affect tribal people across the Northern Plains even today?
