Rain-In-The-Face (ca 1835-1905) was the Hunkpapa Lakota war Chief instrumental in the Sioux Wars of the 1860s and 70s, at various points fighting beside Red Cloud, Gall, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull. Rain-in-the-Face purportedly killed both George and Tom Custer at Little Big Horn, cutting Tom's heart out in revenge for his arrest in 1874 (a legend popularized by H.W. Longfellow's poem).
