Bíawacheeitchish "Woman Chief” or Pine Leaf (c.1806-1858)

The woman known as Woman Chief was a warrior of the Crow tribe and one of their most significant leaders in the 19th century.

She was a Two-Spirit Woman Chief who always wore typical female clothing and never adopted the men’s garments. She became celebrated as a warrior after defending her people during a raid by the Blackfeet on a fort sheltering Crow and other families.

Many white men who met Woman Chief said that they never seen a woman like her and that it was confusing and fascinating feeling all at once. There were stories that she could strike great fear into the hearts of men.
