Satanta or Settainte (White Bear) (ca. 1820 - October 11, 1878) was a Kiowa war chief. He was born about 1820, during the height of the power of the Plains Tribes, probably along the Canadian River in the traditional winter camp grounds of his people. After years of fighting the United States government, Santa was finally arrested and convicted of murder for his part in the Warren Wagon Train Raid. He was paroled after two years, but taken into custody once again. He committed suicide in prison in 1878.

Satanta in Southern Victory[]

Satanta was a chief of the Kiowa, one of the Native American tribes that resided in the Confederate States after it won the War of Secession. In 1881, before the Second Mexican War, United States Colonel George Armstrong Custer pursued Satanta and a band of followers when they crossed into Kansas. Custer was prepared to lead his troops into Indian Territory to capture or kill Satanta, but was thwarted by the arrival of C.S. cavalry.[1]
