Crow and Arikari Indian Scouts played a key role in the Indian Wars and the Battle of Little Bighorn. Crow Scouts worked for the U.S Army. The main objective of the scouts was to find Native American Villages and to lead the Army there. They provided their knowledge and important information about different tribes that helped the Army during battle. These scouts used to live like the Sioux Indians, nomadic, independant, but they were driven off their land by the Sioux. The Sioux and the Crow Indians had always been enemies and the Crow have remained friendly with the United States.
