Pehin Hanska: Song by Earl Bullhead

Pehin Hanska
(Long Hair Custer) 

Pehin Hanska natanyahipelo heyeye
(Long hair, Custer) (Came to count coup) 
Lakota kohan natanyahipelo heyeye
(Allies, friends) (In the meantime) (Count coup) 
Milahanska k un ceyantanpedo heyeyo
(Long knives) (Once was) (Crying counting coup)

Free Translation: Custer came to count coup, but the Dakota were already counting coup. The Long Knives are crying counting coup. (E. Bullhead 2012)
