Scalped Man is a character from Arikara and Pawnee ghost stories, a warrior who returned to life after being killed and scalped in battle and now roams the world as a fearsome spirit being with the top of his head missing. In most stories he frightens and menaces people, but in some he is a tragic figure who haunts his old village and helps people when they are not looking.
