Minnie Hollow Wood (ca. 1856- 1930s) was a Lakota Sioux woman who earned the right to wear a warbonnet because of her valor at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Her husband’s name was Hollow Wood. He was a Cheyenne, who had also fought at the Little Big Horn. The Hollow Woods surrendered to Colonel Nelson A. Miles at Fort Keogh in Montana in 1877
