Chief Little Raven
Chief Little Raven was a Southern Arapaho Indian leader of the 19th century.
His Arapaho name was Hóuusóó, which literally means "young crow" or "young raven,"
usually rendered in English as Hosa (although it has also been spelled Houusoo, Hoosaa, Hosaa, Hósa, O-has-tee, and other ways.)
Little Raven was the chief who oversaw the resettlement of the Southern Arapaho people into Oklahoma.
