The Cheyenne[]

(Excerpted from the full Cheyenne civilopedia)

The Cheyenne are a people of North America's Great Plains who speak an Algonquian language. They are best known for their distinct governing structures: the military societies and the Council of the Forty-Four. The Council of the Forty-Four was responsible for day-to-day leadership of the Cheyenne, as well as maintaining diplomacy both among Cheyenne subgroups and with foreign groups. The military societies were a set of six bands within Cheyenne society; the headmen of these groups were responsible for military leadership and discipline, as well as leading hunts and some types of ceremonies.


Woqini was a Cheyenne military leader and one of the foremost opponents to American expansionism in the Great Plains. Although he never held the title of chief, he was often a de facto leader of the Cheyenne in battle, and was offered (but refused) official titles on several occasions. Woqini was born to the Northern Suhtai band, and was initially named Moséskanetsénoonáhe, but he took the warrior name Woqini after reaching adulthood.

Woqini was highly spiritual; he spent significant amounts of time praying before battle, and regularly undertook quests to cleanse his spirit, in order to protect himself from danger. Because of his confidence in his protection efforts, Woqini often undertook bold and risky battle tactics. In one famous example, he would often ride through enemy rifle range in erratic patterns, seeking to goad them into wasting ammunition.

"Salutations, Woqini, Roman Nose, steadfast protector of the Cheyenne! In your day, you were one of the Cheyenne's most distinguished warriors, several times refusing chieftaincies in order to make the most of your skill on the battlefield. Between your capable tactical mind and your meticulous maintenance of divine protection, you were nigh untouchable for much of your career - and although you would ultimately be slain in battle, this was a rare exception to a long string of victories. Your diligence and your strident resistance to American encroachment have made you one of the Cheyenne people's most enduring heroes, and one of the Americans' most capable rivals.

Woqini, the time has come for the Cheyenne to come together and reclaim all of the power that they once held. Can you mount your horse once more and prove victorious over all opposition? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Greetings, stranger! Some call me Roman Nose, but know that I am the untouchable warrior, Woqini of the Cheyenne."

Defeat: "This is impossible! My preparations were immaculate! How could this have happened?"
