He was the son of Chief Black Fox and Iron Cedar Woman. Chief Flying Hawk was war circa 1862 at Tongue River Region; “When ten years old I was in my first battle on the Tongue River—Montana now. It was an Overland Train of covered wagons who had soldiers with them. The way it was started, the soldiers fired on the Indians, our tribe, only a few of us. We went to our friends and told them we had been fired on by the soldiers, and they surrounded the train and we had a fight with them. I do not know how many we killed of the soldiers, but they killed four of us. “After that we had a good many battles, but I did not take any scalps for a good while. I cannot tell how many I killed when a young man.” He was war on June 26, 1876 at Battle of the Little Big Horn, Lakota Territory.
