Crow
   Native American nation, also known as Absaroke and Apsáalooke. Their reservation in Montana is a small fraction of territory recognized as theirs by treaties with the federal government of the United States in 1851 and 1868. Their traditional lifeways were similar to those of other Plains Indians, nomadic bison-hunting peoples, and their traditional religion included similar ceremonial practices, including the sun dance and sweat lodges. Noted medicine people among the Crow include Pretty Shield, Thomas Yellowtail, and John Pretty on Top. Some such people are healers, but others never heal, instead leading ceremonies on behalf of the community, usually mediating with other-than-human persons.
