    BILLINGS -

    Dr. Joe Medicine Crow, the last living Plains Indian war chief, turned 102 years old on Tuesday.

    Medicine Crow was born on October 27, 1913, near Lodge Grass.

    The decorated WWII veteran and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom attended the University of Southern California where he earned a degree in anthropology in 1939. He is the first member of the Crow tribe to obtain a master's degree.

    Earlier this year, Billings school officials named the new middle school in the Heights "Medicine Crow Middle School," which is currently under construction on the corner of Bench Boulevard and Barret Road.

    Crow is a frequent guest speaker at Little Big Horn College and Little Big Horn Battlefield Museum, and has appeared in several documentaries about the battle.

    He is also a historian and author of several books, and is best known for his writings and lectures concerning the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

    more, plus video.
