Fiercest Native American Tribes

The Top Ten

1 Apache

Vast in number and had very brave warriors

Fearless

2 Comanche

Forced the depopulation of much of Texas following the Civil War. Very dangerous and numerous. Defeated the fort system in the Department of Texas.

The most vast land of any tribe in America.

The Apache were afraid of the Comanche.

Best light cavalry in the world--fought everybody, whites, texans Mexicans, other tribes including driving the apaches out of comancheria. I would put them against the Lakotas anyday!

3 Lakota

Not to discount the many Braves who died trying to save their way of life, but Lakota warfare was so successful because of the great leaders who inspired so many. Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Crazy Horse, Spotted Elk, American Horse, Rain-in-the-Face, Black Elk, and the late Brave Eagle (Russel Means).

I agree. These were very brave Indians. But my favorite is sitting bull

4 Cherokee

6 Navajo
7 Dakota
8 Zuni
9 Ojibwe
10 Crow

One of the wealthiest tribes of the Great Plains/Yellowstone region based on horse numbers from horse raids on other tribes and white man. It is said that Crows even raided horses from Lewis&Clark expedition team. They didn't back down from fighting off other tribes who sought their hunting grounds. Great hunters, fierce warriors, iconic Chiefs and proud people.

The Crows were excellent horsemen, horse raiders, and fought off every intruding tribe from all directions on their own. They defended their homeland fiercely from Lakota, Cheyenne, Northern Arapaho, Blackfoot, Cree, Gros Ventres, and sometimes Shoshones and others.
