"Red Crow and his party, about ten in number, went to the country for horses. When they came to Crow country - as they were coming close to the camps - the Crow hunters saw them and they quietly went home and gave the alarm at every lodge. Riders went up the hill where Red Crow and his party were. The Crow surrounded the area where Red Crow had already made his dugout. The fighting went on all day and late into the night. After dark, Red Crow and his party crept away along the bank. All escaped. As they were making their way along the river, they came across two lodges. Quietly, they drove off the horses that were there and fled for home."

"Sun Calf and his party of eight warriors travelled to Crow country. Once there, they hid by going from coulee to coulee. However, some Crow hunters spotted them and gave the alarm. Soon many riders came out from the Crow camp to fight. Before long two or three hundred Crow had assembled. Sun Calf and his party ran for a hill and were closely chased by the Crow. The Bloods made a dugout on the hill and settled in for a siege. The fighting went on for four days and the Bloods - Sun Calf, Peenaquim, White Wolf, Many Feathers, Little Dog - killed many Crow. During the forth night, the Bloods managed to escape and return home."

"Calf Robe, Bird Rattle, and five others came to a Crow encampment. From their position in a nearby forest, they could see the corral in the centre of the camp. At night Bird Rattle and Calf Robe came into the camp. There was no watchman at the corrral and the two Bloods caught the horses and dropped the corral rails. They swiftly rode off and returned safely to their own people."

"Peenaquim and White Wolf stood on a hill looking down on a Crow camp and planning their raid. That night each found his own route to the camp. Peenaquim found a lodge where two horses were tied to a post. He cut their rope and led them into a bush. White Wolf found a lodge with a half-lodge in front of it. Inside the half-lodge was a white horse with a rope around its neck. The loose end of the rope lay in the hand of a man who was sleeping nearby. White Wolf cut the rope, mounted the horse, and joined his friend. Together, they returned home with nice horses."

"This story is about Chief Calf and the party of seven warriors. Once some riders who were out gathering their horses spotted some Cree on foot trying to chase off part of the herd. Chief Calf and his party wasted no time and pursued the intruders on their fastest horses. They caught up to them at a lake. Riding fast, shooting, and yelling, the Bloods quickly killed two of the Cree. The other ran to another lake, pursued by Chief Calf. At the second lake the Cree ran into the water, but Chief Calf followed him and stabbed him in the heart."

"Peenaquim, White Wolf, and five other Blood warriors were in Crow country when they spotted a Crow camp in a river valley. When they made their way to a tall cliff close to the Crow camp, they saw many Crow warriors riding around, preparing for battle. The Blood felt very protected by the cliffs and began to wave blankets to attract the attention of the Crows. The Bloods killed many Crow and returned home safely."
