The name Running Eagle was bestowed upon her for her bravery, and she was invited to join a warrior society, and acted as a female war chief. She was eventually clubbed to death by members of the Flathead tribe in 1850 when she was caught trying to steal their horses during a battle.

An Oglala Sioux named Running Eagle participated in the Battle of Little Big Horn. He should not be confused with the aforementioned Running Eagle.
