Petalasharo or Man Chief. There were a number of Petalasharos as it was a common name within the Pawnee culture, but the two most famous lived in the the 19th century. One saved a captured Indian maiden from human sacrifice and the other was the Great Chief during the removal of the tribe from Nebraska. He died a mysterious death in 1875.
